Meet Chester French


Harvard University is the home of some of America's finest thinkers. The university is also the alma mater of a few happy go lucky indie popsters. Meet the hip and preppy Maxwell Drummey and D.A. Wallach of Chester French. They study social anthropology and African-American Studies, respectively.

These two 21 year-old seniors  have been making music together for the last three years and are currently readying their full-length album "Love The Future." When they started out they used to wake up in the morning, write some songs, record them to disc and run out to Boston's Harvard Square to sell their music for a few bucks. "We did anything to sell a copy: perform a song right then and there with max on acoustic and me singing, promise a full refund if they didn't love it (which I don't think anyone had the courage to take us up on), really whatever," writes D.A. on their MySpace page.

Their productions have matured quite a bit since their time on Harvard Square. Head over to their MySpace page to preview tracks from the record. I love their track "She Loves Everybody" with that cutesy bassline and airy '60s vocals. (Thanks to Lukas for the heads up.)

Yeah, these cats got potential. I had a neighbor two years ago get one of their albums in Harvard square and most recently I rediscoverd the album and went over to their myspace page to check on them. Really love that "She Loves Everybody" track. I had a short little blurb on my page about a couple weeks. Keep spreading that good holiday cheer.

This band is definitely one to keep an eye on. Hit up their myspace, and you'll know why. Every song up there has it.
