Baby Gopal was always an interesting band from the start. Fronted by Australian born singer/guitarist Sri Kesava (who is also the wife of frontman Ray Cappo of the legendary punk band Youth of Today) the band fused Hari Krishna dogma laced lyrics with a meld of hardcore and pop-punk to astonishing results.
The music is endlessly catchy and Sri‘s beautiful voice will keep you captivated like a syren from wire to wire. This amazing album was sadly overlooked in 1996 because of another similar "girl power" band that was already ripping up the charts. You might have heard of them, No Doubt anyone? If you are a fan of Gwen however, you will probably also enjoy the sound of Baby Gopal.
Sri now records on her own (Baby Gopal later signed to Tommy Boy in 1998 before breaking up shortly thereafter), but the original Baby Gopal album is some of her best work to date. - Jay McGrath
