Charleston, SC's Slow Runner formed in 2003 around the talents of singer/songwriter Michael Flynn and multi-instrumentalist Josh Kaler. The band’s melodic, laid-back blend of Shins-inspired indie rock, peppered with the occasional blast of Weezer-esque power pop, first appeared in 2006 with No Disassemble, followed by Shiv in 2007 and Mermaids in 2008. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
