Antenna Farm Welcomes Agent Ribbons!

Agent RibbonsWe are pleased to announce the newest addition to the Antenna Farm roster, Austin’s (by way of Sacramento) Agent Ribbons!

Agent Ribbons isn’t just a band–it’s a tree house club of post-feminist dreamers trying to find their place in the scheme of things, like a hand-sewn and lovingly-crafted garment in a modern, disposable world. Musically, an impeccable taste in influences (from the Zombies to Eartha Kitt, The Breeders to the Velvet Underground, and beyond…) helps them find a sound that is both classically informed and yet innovative and fresh sounding. They miraculously reconcile seemingly-unrelated genres and make it seem easy, sounding something like Girls in the Garage doing the Three Penny Opera.

Agent Ribbons have been doing their thing for a few years now, and since 2007, the band has toured the U.S. more times than they can remember. Some of those tours were with big national acts like Camera Obscura, Cake, Detroit Cobras and Girl in a Coma, and the rest were done vigilante-style in a Chevy Astro. A move in 2010 saw the Ribbons pull up their Sacto stakes and move to Austin, which they now call home when not hitting the road and jamming econo.

Antenna Farm Records is pleased to present Chateau Crone, the upcoming sophomore album from Agent Ribbons. Releasing October 12th, the album was recorded by Manny Nieto (The Breeders, HEALTH) and Scott McChane (editor of Tape Op) and is the most accomplished Agent Ribbons recording yet. It is also a manifesto of sorts, a call to arms and open invitation for all aspiring Chateau Cronies to join them on their future Crone estate, and each CD comes with a 24 page booklet outlining plans for the Chateau as well as a temporary tattoo with the Chateau Crone crest.

Positive press is already rolling in, and the first single from Chateau Crone is featured this week on NPR’s All Songs Considered. You can listen here, or check out the tune below. And with a live show that matches the passion and energy of their new album, we are pleased to announce that Agent Ribbons will be touring the US with Girl In a Coma this August and September, full dates to be announced soon.
