Richie Egan stands prudently behind this Irish indie band, Jape. A couple months ago, we featured "The Oldest Mind" as a single from his album, Ocean of Frequency (Fourth album and labeled with Music/Is/For/Losers).
Since the album was recently released, Richie has been traveling the world and implanting his folky trances into our souls. Unfortunately, I missed my opportunity to see Jape perform at CMJ but he generously answered a few questions via emailing. Listen to his newest single from Ocean of Frequency, a less electronic track, "Scorpio" and enjoy the brief read.
