Chicano Batman is your sonic outlet from monotony back into the soul. Ethnomusicologists in their own right, Chicano Batman are students of rhythm, globe trotting on a quest to reclaim and represent the musical roots of their past generations.

Following a run of dates opening for Jack White on his Lazaretto tour, the band blew away fans at last year’s Coachella before hitting the road with Alabama Shakes. Along the way, the quartet’s Latin-psych-slow-jam soul with a pinch of surf-rock cumbia has been highlighted by everyone from Rolling Stone, LA Times, Entertainment Weekly and Paste to The New York Times, Under The Radar and Noisey.

Chicano Batman recently released “Black Lipstick”, an organ soaked track featuring back up vocals by Saudia Yasmein. Originally set to be produced by Ikey Owens (Jack White, Mars Volta) before his unfortunate passing, the track was recorded and produced by Owens’ studio partner Antoine Arvizu.

Summer 2016 will see Chicano Batman performing at Bonnaroo, XPoNential Fest, Levitation as they finish up their new album.
79.5
79.5
79.5 drips silky, raw-honeyed R&B emotion and radiates luxurious triple-female vocal harmonies. Their voices erupt into soulful solos riding over the sonic fabric of slick, heavy-hitting beats & bass silhouetted by organ, percussive funk guitar, and lavish tenor sax & flute. 79.5 blends future sounds and tones with elements of 90s R&B, psych rock, and soul, creating a sound entirely their own.

In April, 79.5 signed with Big Crown Records, and cut their first full length LP, with producer Leon Michels.
