This one’s a little bit of a cheat: the second track, the obvious standout, is not available for download at the link above. But this is the link I received from their site, which promises a “free download” of this entire album. This song is available on iTunes and Amazon MP3, because it was also released on another of their (non-free) albums. That’s probably why Last.fm doesn’t have it for download.
Theives Like Us make music that my good pal Fred would put on his “80s Cop Soundtrack” playlist—it’s heavily synthesized instrumental music, fading between driving motorik beats and ambient washes. It does a good job of receding in the background if you need it to, though it’s definitely motivating, whether you’re driving or working or just chillin’. This music makes you want to get up and do something. And, as a bonus for those of you who are just completely tired of vari-speed, “woozy” synthesizer music, Thieves Like Us keep it on the straight and level the whole time.
