Taking notes from bands like the Shaggs, the Boswell Sisters and the Zombies, Agent Ribbons reconcile seemingly unrelated genres, sounding like Girls in the Garage doing the Three Penny opera.
CHATEAU CRONE is Agent Ribbons second full-length album, following the band’s self-released “On Time Travel and Romance” and two vinyl singles released through Acuarela and Seven Inch Project. Each copy of CHATEAU CRONE comes with a 24 page full-color booklet all about their future dream estate, where they can grow old together in a supportive, artistic atmosphere outside the realms of society’s oppressive expectations of aging women. For other aspiring Chateau Cronies that share their witchy, Golden Girls dream, the album also comes with a full-color temporary tattoo donning the official crest of Chateau Crone.
