CHICANO BATMAN


My boo has great taste in music, and even though I give him shit and tell him he doesn't, I must admit he's introduced me to some dope artist... like the band I'm currently obsessed with,  Chicano Batman, Yeah I said it, Chicano Batman... I hope they play in Friscolandia soon, I'll be there in my Catwoman suit y todo!!!




They have this sound that I can't quite breakdown... I hear a hint of  Thee Midnighters, Los Angeles Negros,  some sort of tropicalia, 70's style, whatever this sound is called, I'm a fan for sure... La Breezy is down, I'm ready to be saved, where's the Batmo-Ranfla?!!! Pick me up ayyy, I wanna cuise to some Chicano Batman!!!
