I am always on the lookout for new music, and occasionally I will find something that just blows my mind. That was the case with Anamanaguchi. I played Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game on Xbox Live Arcade and there was just something about the whole retro vibe that caught me. I really dug the music and eventually bought the soundtrack, and that is where I heard the name Anamanaguchi. I have since bought two more of their albums and I’m having a blast listening to it all.

The albums are apparently recorded with a hacked Nintendo Entertainment System and Game Boy, and when they play live, they play over the recordings with real instruments.

Definitely check them out if you think it’s something you might be into. Since they’re a New York band I might try to see them live one of these days.
