Anamanaguchi is a chiptune indie band who pride themselves in the type of geekiness and nerdiness that doesn't care iota how to act 'cool' or conform to the stereotypical rocker fashion. Chiptune is, it's a subgenre of electronic that involves the producer or band utilizing 8-bit and 16-bit sounds--think of retro videogame noises--and these retro videogame noises are what makes Anamamaguchi undeniably unique. They're not just producers square-pushing, but they also incorporate drums, guitars, bass, and piano into the mix as well. Thus, an unfathomable creation is spawned and is showcased in their released work and in their live shows. [...]
Thank god for the internet. Not only does it mean that I don't need to try and pronounce ' Anamanaguchi ' out loud, but also that the New York quartet's unique brand of 8-bit indie rock can exist and thrive. After all, not only did their previous release 'Meow' receive almost 500,000 YouTube views, but it also appeared on the soundtrack of the Scott Pilgrim video game. Their most recent single 'Planet' serves to perfectly demonstrate the band's penchant for infectious, engaging music and the unknown versatility of Chiptunes. Both songs will feature on the band's [...]

The world's greatest chiptune band - and noted Scott Pilgrim video game soundtrackers - Anamanaguchi return (finally!) with another full-length - Endless Fantasy . It drops May 14th. The new single from the album, "Planet", however, moves the band in a more glo-fi direction, sounding something like the follow-up to Neon Indian 's Psychic Chasms that we all kind of wanted. Luckily though, the ADHD melodies that made the band so bad-ass in the first place remain. And it's also not as if they suddenly traded in the 8-bit sounds wholesale - there's [...]
It was a busy week for me with the release of the newest NYC podcast and presenting our latest show Friday night. But I did find a little time to discover some new tracks and videos to share for the Weekly Roundup, too.

After three years of work, the album will finally be available via their own dream.hax label. They've already started the party with the pop-punk/rave infused music video for " Meow ," and are psyched to now share the album art (above), the track listing to Endless Fantasy , and a brand new song off the record. Endless Fantasy is an [...]
