JAPE

Trust Me I'm A Thief

Release Date: September 10th
Distrubution Interactive/RMG

  “You’ll reference quirky bits of Stereolab, Kraftwerk and Yo La Tengo and if you have any sense you’ll recognise this for what it is: a fully formed class act, with Egan as a cult figure surely bound for crossover success.” – Irish Times

ALBUM LAUNCH in CRAWDADDY, Dublin 2, Tuesday September

The music of Jape is a breath of fresh air to the smoggy atmosphere of Dublin. The first album “Cosmosphere” which was released last year on the Volta Sounds label showed his experimental side and sense of humour with stoner folk and 8 bit electronics rubbing shoulders with friendly ease. It caught the attention of some notable reviewers and deejays with Donal Dineen from Today FM playing it off the air on the show, “Here Comes the Night”.

This September Jape will release a new album, “the monkeys in the zoo have more fun than me” on Trust Me I’m A Thief Records. Produced by Jimmy Eadie in Dublin. This album shows a more thoughtful side to Jape’s music. It is preceded by a single, “Floating”, co-produced with David Kitt which melds mortality blues, hip hop and Gregorian chants to head bopping affect and is proving to be something of an underground hit with club deejays playing it out and getting all sorts of amazing reactions.

The rest of the record bounces from one genre to another with graceful ease. From Tim Hardin style folk on, “The Hardest Thing to do”, to Sterling Morrison style glacial guitar playing on, “To the Sea”, to Joao Gilberto influenced bossa p­op on, “Autumn Summer”, all the while maintaining it’s own unique voice.
