Ritz Brits

It's called the Ritz for a reason.

Another Reason to Love Abe Lincoln December 26, 2009

Chester French Love the FutureMy new favorite album is none other than Chester French, Love the Future.  Formed in Boston and named for Daniel Chester French, who designed the Lincoln Memorial, this stand out new group could be filed under pop, rock, alternative, hip hop, you name it.  Jacks of all trades (or genres), Chester French has collaborated with Asher Roth, and toured with Lady Gaga, Blink 182, and N.E.R.D.Chester French in Vogue

They’ve also appeared in Vogue, as “Already Famous”, a “band you should already know”.  Fans of Weezer, Phoenix, Hot Hot Heat, Plain White T’s, and the Kooks will be spinning this record for a long time to come.  My favorite tracks are C’mon (On My Own), Bebe Buell, The Jimmy Choos, Neal, and Not Over You.

Chester FrenchThe two members, D.A. Wallach and Maxwell Drummey, cite British pop as an influence for their upbeat, unique sound that sounds a little retro.  Their fresh beats will put you in a good mood and keep you dancing.  And as if they weren’t cool enough, check out their free mixtape, Jacques Jams.  An entire album, filled with the likes of Lady Gaga, Wale, Pharrell Williams, Kardinal Offishall, and Solange Knowles.  http://chesterfrench.com/mixtape/
