More About

Rupa and the April Fishes is one of those Bay Area groups that's been around for years, and never quite gotten its due. But that may be about to change: Build, the newest album by working physician Rupa Marya and her band, shows off global influences in some of their most appealing songs yet. Even though it's mostly sung in English — a first for this crew — we still get lots of international flavor: there's the French reggae of "Sur La Route," hints of Spanish on "No Olvidado," and a two-tone cover of the Clash's "Guns of Brixton" — with switched-up lyrics that mention Oscar Grant. Celebrating the working classes the world over, Build is just the kind of conscientious statement you'd expect to come out of the Bay Area.
