Following their breakthrough 2010 album, Chateau Crone, (praised by Vice for it’s “impeccable taste” and by NPR as “Feel-good garage rock.”), Agent Ribbons has a new EP, Let Them Talk, a teaser to a third full-length LP, coming in 2013.
Let Them Talk is a return to the band’s rawer early recordings, with classic Spector-esque stacked girl-group harmonies balancing on top of a raucous rock foundation. Standout track Family Haircut rides a complex and dark minor key melody before riding out on a triumphant harmony line, while the nonchalant opening line of Let Them Talk (“I wanted to keep your baby but I couldn’t look away from the thing that held my gaze”) shows the band hasn’t lost their taste for black humor.
Let Them Talk will appear as a 5 song digital EP available on iTunes, Amazon MP3, eMusic, Spotify, Rhapsody, and countless other digital retailers. It will also appear in physical format as a limited run 7″, complete with a free download of a studio recording of ‘Fucked Up’, a live show favorite not available on the digital EP!
