Anamanaguchi is a really creative chiptunes band!
I got their most recent album ‘Dawn Metropolis’ on iTunes.
Really cool stuff.
Who is Anamanaguhi? Via Wikipedia
Anamanaguchi is a chiptune indie rock band from New York City that “makes loud, fast music with a hacked NES from 1985.” The band has four members: lead songwriter Peter Berkman, bassist James DeVito, guitarist Ary Warnaar and drummer Luke Silas. Akin to other chiptune artists, Anamanaguchi creates music using synthesizers, albeit unconventional ones: namely a hacked NES and Game Boy. However, unlike most chiptune bands, Anamanaguchi employs live electric guitar, bass and drums on top of said synthesized music to create a fusion of digital and traditional sounds. Though they use video game hardware from the mid to late 1980s, Berkman states that their music has nothing to do with video game music, as their songwriting is mostly inspired by “[s]imple pop stuff, like Weezer and the Beach Boys.”
