Looks like Sufjan Stevens is cleaning out his harddrive / iCloud / box of tapes in the attic / mystery wardrobe full of demos - continuing his streak of sharing demos, here's "Jamila," a birthday song he recorded to a four-track tape for his sister in 1998. It's short and sweet, a couple simple lyrics - "my sister, I miss her, she's always a good friend of mine" - over some typically Sufjan tangled banjo and acoustic guitar. Check it out.
