The Glitch Mob - "Drive It Like You Stole It" (MP3 / video)

"Drive It Like You Stole It", the single from the Glitch Mob aimed at driving up anticipation for their forthcoming debut album, Drink the Sea, has been in my head for a month solid.

I thought I'd be able to shake it, but it's impossible. The synthesized driving beat and the ebb and flow of the industrial rollercoaster of sound have stuck it in my head, possibly permanently. The Music Ninja says, "The Glitch Mob is out to rob you of your senses," while XLR8R called the track "an anthem... announcing the coming of the beat scene's heroes". The MP3 is widely available on the Internet, including right here, which is a good move when it comes to dropping one's first album.

Suffice it to say, I'm looking forward to May 25th, and the rest of this album. You can check the group's homepagefor almost-daily May tour dates, covering massive swaths of the US.
