No one can accuse Slow Gherkin of cranking out the product: Ten years after the band was formed by a bunch of Santa Cruz high school students, they're just getting around to their third album. But Run Screaming was worth the wait. Drawing deeply on the band's longstanding soul, ska, and classic rock influences, it finds them singing mature lyrics about love, family, and adulthood over well-crafted (but never suffocatingly tight) arrangements that balance nice chord charts with meat-and-potatoes guitar rock.
