Seeking the name of a pop/alternative song with an odd but cool sound

by Aaron

The song is medium tempo and probably from the 2000s (USA); I heard it played between 2008 and 2010.

It's a male solo with a lot of what sounds like a banjo between each verse as well as repetitive, cyclical percussion. I was never able to make out the words due to the store's (I was working at an office supply store) poor speaker system, but they had a very eccentric sound and (to me at least) kind of a mournful tone.

The very end of the song had an instrument that sounded either electronic or possibly even an Indian folk instrument; overall this was just a WEIRD but somehow very cool-sounding song.

I've searched at length using every search engine at my disposal, but to no avail, though I figure it had to be at least a minor hit to play alongside the other pop/alternative music that came over the speakers.
