Rupa & the April Fishes have finished recording their highly anticipated second album titled "este mundo" that is due out on Cumbancha in the fall of 2009. The album is in post production now but look out for pre-release freebies and video fun on their myspace and facebook pages. Recorded and mixed at the famed Prairie Sun Recording Studio by Oz Fritz, whose credits include Tom Waits and Paris Combo, the album features a cadre of musical compatriots from the bay area and beyond including Robin Sukhadia on tabla, Ara Anderson on trumpets, and Andy Strain on trombone. Special guest Boots Riley of the Coup lends his lyrical skills to a funky rap break down. Currently, Rupa & the April Fishes are on tour in Europe.
