“Relay Runner” has two stable layers and a third that is adventuresome. The steady, energetic rhythm provides the foundation. The instruments that define the foundation vary at times, but the foundation is solid. The vocals attractively rest atop those instruments with a half-whispered perception of current reality. Then, there are instruments that drift in as if they escaped from another genre. The first sustained drift occurs at about 1:40, when the guitar begins wondering around until it is blown to the wayside by an eerie wind at 2:07.
