A Jape and Villagers Sandwich

Like your Villagers, Jape and/or Crayonsmith? Well, if a combo of all three might delight you, get your self over to the Seapoint Ballroom in Galway on December 14th for a show that handily features all three. Already live in Galway? Well, then Christmas really has come early and you’ve no excuse not to attend.

To whet your appetites, have a go of a track just posted by Jape, a collaboration between himself and himself out of Villagers.

I thought it would be nice to let you hear a track that Conor O Brien and I made together a while ago, with Glenn Keating providing drums and advice afterwards. The original plan was for me and Conor to take a song of each of ours and let the other one embellish it. This was a track I had written a while back on acoustic guitar, one night Conor came to my house, bringing his 808 and we stayed up all night recording, turning it into a different beast. It was a really magical night, constantly working until morning and then we had the basic bones of the track, I kind of let it sit on my hard drive for a good long time but then when these gigs came along Glenn and me took the track into his studio and recorded some extra drums and synths. Then I took it home to Malmo and mixed it myself in my little studio there. I’m classing this as a home mix. I’m not sure if it will end up any place else or even it might get remixed some place else, but either way I hope you enjoy it, and thanks a lot to Conor and Glenn for being such musical inspirations to me.


Crayonsmith aren’t involved sadly, but close your eyes and you can pretend to hear him on castanets.
