Album: High Noon
Artist: The Funk Ark
Description: Here is some prime Southwest caper music (and I mean speeding-clumsily-through-a-desert-with-someone-else’s-money caper). This entire album feels like the backdrop to a comedic heist movie, the kind with briefcases filled with only $60,000, and the guys stealing are small-timers or normal citizens down on their luck. The music is energetic, fun, and busy. Perfect for writing about a setting in the Southwest or the desert, and especially for a plot involved some small-timers stealing from someone they shouldn’t have, leaving them running through the desert in response.
