Anamanaguchi – “Space Wax America”

A brand new track from the chiptune rockers Anamanaguchi, which comes from the NY group’s forthcoming album, Endless Fantasy. The LP is currently looking at a May 14th release date, and the band is trying to make this album cycle bigger and better than past ones with a new Kickstarter that’s currently raising money for distribution, music videos, live show lighting, future collaborations, and more. Enjoy!

Anamanaguchi – “Meow” (LOVED)

For a handful of years, New York’s Anamanaguchi have been making some energetic, hyper-melodic, and chiptune-infused rock music. In 2010, the band strung together a series of amazing, free singles they put out on their site, and took part in producing the soundtrack for the Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World videogame soundtrack.

Now the older, wiser, and they’ve finally mustered up the courage to put together another full-length LP. The title is Endless Fantasy, and it’s due for a Spring release. In the meantime, we’ve got audio and video for the group’s new single, “Meow.” It’s neon-colored, pixie stix’d, ready to friggin’ party. The music video itself looks like a tricked out Chuck E. Cheese commercial for twentysomethings. No complaints there. The song is loaded with rich, wailing melodies that are backed up with samples of kitty cats meowing. This is truly rock for the .gif-addicted Tumblr user.

Anamanaguchi- “Airbrushed”

“Airbrushed” will be the first of Anamanaguchi’s 2010 summer singles to get a physical release this March. This ultra-melodic rock anthem is an awesome overload that has to power to make both eyes and smiles to wide.

There’s no doubt that these guys are smashing any preconceived notions about the legitimacy of 8-bit music.

Anamanaguchi- “Mess” ‡ MP3

This past Monday, I did a blogTV. There, one of my Needle Drops reminded the band Anamanaguchi still exists. They make the kind of 8bit music you might hear if Nintendo had programmed a game about Andrew W.K. in the 80s. Of course, the object of the game would be to party and kill as many things as possible.

They’ve been releasing a new single every two weeks on their website, and “Mess” is their latest installment. Follow the link below to download it:
