Until about 11 o’clock last night, I had no idea who in the world Chester French was. I had heard the name before and that was about the end of our relationship. Was it a band? Was it a one man show? Is anyone named Chester besides that Sloan song circa 1998? I decided to check out Chester French out of curosity, and I’m not sure that I have ever taken to a band so quickly. Think of them as MGMT lite. Chester French is indeed a band. I checked out the video for ‘She Loves Everybody’ and I haven’t been able to get the song out of my head since. The duo of Maxwell Drummey and D.A. Wallach met at Harvard, named themselves after a sculptor (David Chester French), have been remixed by N.E.R.D., played SXSW and have been signed to Star Trax/Interscope Records. Phew. Chester French is definatly THE band to watch out for in 2009.
