Friendship (Is A Small Boat In A Storm) - Chicano Batman

from the album Freedom Is Free (2017)

Chicano Batman are a Los Angeles-based four piece band that creates a great vibes.  Their unique and eclectic sound intertwines tripped-out early psychedelia, Curtis Mayfield inspired soul, and varied latin stylings ranging from Argentina to Mexico.  It all comes together quite well.

On their new album - Freedom Is Free - they add Summer of Love lyrical themes with great effect.

My favorite tune (thus far) is Friendship (Is A Small Boat In A Storm).  The "space echo" of the synthesizer track trades jabs with glorious falsetto and background vocals over a tight rhythm section.  The guitar leads also stands out for its classic '70s tones.

Chicano Batman is a fun band.  I hope to catch a live show soon.
