The band's debut, "No Disassemble," is a change of pace from the normal run of the pop schlock -- picture Elf Power channeled by a broken robot (in a good way, folks), and you're on the right track. Anyway, Slow Runner's playing Boston in mid-June, opening up for The Sam Roberts Band, so take a listen on their website, and buy the tickets.
