"Sat. Nite Duets/ All These Runners / Faux Fir @ The Cactus Club Feb 24th"

So this lineup may be one of the best things I’ve seen so far this year. Sat. Nite Duets, the always-awesome throwback band teaming up with All These Runners, who went on temporary hiatus in 2011, but are back together and playing more shows than ever. And Faux Fir, a band with some of the most exciting music in the city.

Some good friends of mine, All These Runners. I’m quite glad that they’re playing again. I really, really have some good feelings about their future. - The Music Of MKE

"The Best Milwaukee Bandcamp Releases"

The Best of 2010 lists are full and in effect. So I thought I will do a little twist on the best of 2010 lists by featuring some of the best Milwaukee music that was released via Bandcamp. Bandcamp has become a major distributor of independently released music in 2010. Bandcamp make it very easy to share and embed music on websites. The site makes it very easy for any artist or band to release and distribute their music on the internet. The list consists of music from almost every genre. I selected these release by using the Milwaukee tag on the Bandcamp site. Some of the artists in this list our natives of Milwaukee, but have recently moved to another list. - 88.9 Radio Milwaukee

In the past several years, All These Runners have grown up together, as friends and bandmates. Throughout this time, they've spent countless hours writing music, playing music, obsessing over music, arguing about music, and ultimately enjoying music. Because they like music. And each other. The band has served as a creative outlet, but more importantly, as an excuse to just hang out. The members (Rusty Edlund, Tony Hunt, and John Kim) have relied on each other's musical tastes as much as their abilities as friends.

Still, over these past years, All These Runners have tried their best to musically evolve, to push themselves and craft and fine-tune a sound that's wholly their own. This process has been chronicled in an EP, two LPs (one of which is soon to be released), and a graveyard littered with scrapped ideas. The finished products are a cocktail of musical influences: one part post-rock, one part 80s art-pop, and two parts Rock (with a capital R). These songs may occasionally challenge the listener, because the band likes to challenge themselves, and share this experience with others. Hopefully, there's some solid hook, something the listener can really grab onto, and pull themselves toward the heart of the song.

Combining pop sensibilities, artful soul, and good ol' fashion Rock, All These Runners hope to vault themselves into the pantheon of Indie Rock gods.
