Musically, lyrically and rhythmically it not only reflects the best from the past, but urges the genre to higher heights. Taj Weekes & Adowa unite a true social consciousness with an unforgettable reggae groove.
\"Pumcayó\" is Spanish for \"thump! (it/he/she) fell\". The music crafted by the quintet touches on contemporary folk acts like Fleet Foxes and Grizzly Bear, with occasional nods to progressive rock.

Pumcayó has collaborated with visual artist Marcel Dzama and has shared stage with bands such as OKGO and Kings of Convenience.

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. Listening to everything from Eartha Kitt to the Velvet Underground and taking notes from bands like the Shaggs, the Boswell Sisters and the Zombies, they miraculously reconcile seemingly-unrelated genres, sounding something like Girls in the Garage doing the Three Penny Opera.
