I'd say their sound kind of splits the difference between Kill Hannah, Jimmy Eat World, and Queens of the Stone Age, which works for me. I thought I was one of the only people 'in the know' about this group, but I guess other people have noticed now. Ironically, the ad was for Nascar and a Gillette razor. See it below.

Sometimes you find songs in the weirdest places...
So I was at a friend's house the other day and her boyfriend was watching hockey. During one of the commercial breaks I actually got distracted from my New York times crossword (and this was on a Friday, when those things are TOUGH and I'm 100% focused!) by the song blasting from the TV - low and behold, it was Shapes of Race Cars, one of my favorite new bands of '09.
