"It's That Chester Sh*t It's So Outrageous, Don't Know What to Do"




Oh. My. Shit. MLS done hit it into and out the back net of the upper 90. For this year's MLS Cup they got Pharrell's latest proteges and Ivy League hipster-hop sensations Chester French for the pre-game entertainment. I'm not kidding you when I say that I have been waiting a solid year for them to release She Loves Everybody and it's Neptunes-meets-Weezer freshness (it's out today).

If you haven't heard of them, check out their tour diary and get familiar. Also check their Jay-Z remix. And certainly don't sleep on The Jimmy Choo's. This is MLS's best performance selection since Lupe Fiasco.

LOL, I was gonna call CF "the Paris Hilton of the hipster nation" on the blog last week (famous without actually doing anything), then BAM, a release after a year.

you'd have to get into their style to appreciate the music. this is not mainstream music, therefore, it's awsome.

Our Lady Peace is still the best MLS CUP entertainment thus far. Jimmy Eat World last year was just a weak excuse for - well - a weak excuse for entertainment.

Yeah, "Jimmy Choo's" really does sound like old Weezer (and that is not a bad thing).

They suck. Honestly. One of the worst bands I've ever heard and I'm not the only one.

"Chester French are a duo of recent Harvard graduates discovered by fellow alum Rivers Cuomo and signed to Pharrell's Interscope imprint Star Trak.

They are beyond terrible."

--Pitchfork Media

If a band has to try that hard to be cool, they aren't.
