Chicano Batman

Chicano Batman is your sonic outlet from the monotonous, back into the soul. Ethnomusicologists in their own right, they are students of rhythm, globe trotting on a quest to reclaim and represent the musical roots of their past generations. Drawing from a broad range of 60s and early 70s Brazilian bossa nova and samba, spacey psychedelia, slow-jam soul with a pinch of surf-rock cumbia, the quartet uniforms their act in retro ruffled tuxedo shirts from a thrift store near you. Chicano Batman is more than a musical force but an adventurous and opinionated superhero who feeds off of community, afro-centricity, and bolillos, on a mission to bring the overlooked to the forefront.



"Our sounds are a tapestry of fateful events we call, Brainstory."

Brothers Kevin and Tony Martin along with Eric Hagstrom form the power trio known as Brainstory. By blending the elements of psychedelic jazz, soul, and folk with influences such as Curtis Mayfield, Miles Davis, Jimi Hendrix, The Beach Boys, and Stark Reality, the boys take their audiences to the edges of the galaxy and back.
