Agent Ribbons return to Oakland for a show with Social Studies, Emily Jane White & More!

Agent Ribbons on the road!Agent Ribbons are headed back into the the studio to start recording a whole new set of songs as a follow up to 2010′s critically acclaimed Chateau Crone.  The band will spend the first week of February recording in their old hometown of Sacramento but are stopping in Oakland for a one-off gig on the way next Friday, January 27th.

But it’s not just any show. This gig will be a blowout as the Ribbons share the stage with fellow AF artists Social Studies, who are also about to head into the studio to record a follow up to their 2010 album Wind Up Wooden Heart. With engineer Eli Crews (who has recorded albums for the likes of Deerhoof and tUnE-yArDs) on the boards we’re looking forward to checking these tunes out!

Also on the bill will be a short solo set by Emily Jane White, a local singer songwriter who we’ve become quite enamored of over here at the AF HQ. More on her in a subsequent post.

Rounding out the bill are openers SunBears! a great indie pop duo out of Florida on their first west coast tour, the norcal retro poppers The Ian Fays, and DJ Zola. This bill is like a ginsu knife set, the hits keep coming!

So come on out, it’s only $5!

New Video for Grey Gardens!

We love fan-made videos! They are always a great surprise, especially when they are done as well as this video from the mysterious picturechris. Taking footage from Grey Gardens, the amazing Maysles documentary on the Beales, and combining it with the Agent Ribbons song inspired by the film? Perhaps a bit predictable…and a little shaky on copyright grounds….but when done this well it’s hard to deny! Kudos!



Grey Gardens appears on Agent Ribbons’ 2010 album, Chateau Crone, available on CD/LP/MP3 at the Antenna Farm Store.

Agent Ribbons release new video!

Happy Memorial Day! Agent Ribbons are on the verge of wrapping up their west coast tour, with just a couple of shows left on their way back to Austin…..a great time to turn back the clock from their new LP Chateau Crone and to release the video for 2009′s ‘That’s Not Edgar’s Heart’ (from the ‘Agent Ribbons and the Star-Crossed Doppleganger‘ courtesy of Seven Inch Project).

Beautifully shot and directed by Ryan McCoy for Blank Productions, it’s their first video for Agent Ribbons. We hope to see more!

Agent Ribbons Announce West Coast Tour!

Agent RibbonsIt’s springtime, and they’ve got a new vehicle, and that can mean only one thing: Agent Ribbons are hitting the road for a string of southwest and west coast dates covering the last week of April through the whole month of May!

Their last time out here was a frantic whirlwind around Christmas time, and it left a lot of ground uncovered. This time around, they are rectifying that. Several shows in Los Angeles , Sacramento and the Bay Area, plus their first visits to Portland and Seattle in over a year….and by popular demand, they’re even hitting the smaller central CA towns  like Modesto, Grass Valley and Fresno…. this tour will be epic.

Agent Ribbons – I’m Alright

The duo’s 2010 album, Chateau Crone, is one of the fastest sellers in Antenna Farm history, and if you haven’t seen this band play live yet, you don’t know what you’re missing. Get out your datebook and see what the fuss is all about, tour dates below! And keep up to date on new shows being added by checking out the tour page on Facebook!

Agent Ribbons prep California shows, featured in BUST!

They’re back!

Fresh off a 3 week run through France Portugal, and Spain, Agent Ribbons are recuperating for a minute in Austin before heading back to California for a week’s worth of pre-holiday shows, including stops in Oakland, SF, LA, Sacramento, and Grass Valley. If you haven’t yet picked up a copy of their excellent new album, Chateau Crone, this is a great opportunity to get a CD or LP direct from the band. Tour dates below.

Meanwhile, one of the last cool magazines left, BUST, has got a full page Agent Ribbons feature by renowned music critic Everett True. And yes, BUST is a bit old fashioned, and you can’t read this online. But it’s a great interview with Natalie that’s well worth the trip down to your local periodicals merchant (in Oakland, we recommend the fine establishment Issues, off Piedmont Ave.).

Agent Ribbons in VICE, Europe Tour starts NOW!

Wow. Thumbing through this month’s Vice Magazine record reviews, we were pleasantly surprised to see a review of Agent Ribbons‘ new album Chateau Crone. As a bonus, it’s a positive review, and doesn’t have that little pukey face! Alright! To wit:

“They have impeccable taste in musical genres, and can morph from swampy 60s garage rock to harmony-laden gothy chamber-pop to campy cabaret like it’s no big whoop. I hear shades of the Shangri-las, the Raincoats, Rasputina, Helium, and Dame Darcy (who also drew one of their 7-inch covers)—all awesome things to hear shades of.”

Nice. To read more of the VICE review, click here. To get your copy of Chateau Crone on CD/LP/MP3, click here.

So anyway, what do Agent Ribbons do in response to this great review? They’re leaving the country! Don’t worry, they’ll be back in December for some California and Austin shows, but for now, France, Spain and Portugal, watch out!
