The New 2013 Ford Mustang had been getting a marketing push lately, fronted by a new catchy tv spot. I actually really like the redesign of the new Mustang. I think the back end in particular recalls the classic look of the late 60's Shelby Cobras. It helps that they've marketed this new-old look with a cool-looking/sounding commercial. I also liked the Black Swan reference thrown in at the end.

The song featured in the ad is 'How it Starts' by The Features. Bit of a hard edge to the song. I almost want to compare it to The Black Keys... but for how The Back Keys are a throwback band, The Features seem like a more modernized version of that sound. Not quite as raw and hard-rocking, but with some of those elements and a bit of synth thrown in there.
Here's a live version I've been playing a lot lately:
I'll try to make this the last "commercial song" post I do for a while. I like to have the tv on low when I'm studying, and whenever a song catches my ear I make a note of it. Just seems like it's been happening a lot lately.
