From the opening notes of Friendship (Is a Small Boat in a Storm), you know there’s something special going on with Chicano Batman. There’s no one else quite like them. Chicano Batman is a soulful band from L.A. that pay homage to their favorite Latin American soul groups from the 70’s. The band’s influences include 60’s Tropicalia, samba, spacey psychedelia, and slow-jam soul with a touch of surf rock. Their new album Freedom is Free hits the record store shelves Friday, March 3rd. They’ll also be making an appearance at Forecastle!
