Prom Night (Lindsay Lowend Remix)
Prom Night (Lindsay Lowend Remix). Damnnnn… This was my favorite track off Endless Fantasy, and Anamanaguchi and Lindsay Lowend somehow managed to improve on it, or at least do its remix justice. That Capcom-esque bit at 00:32 is runnin’ the streets.
The band, currently touring in Europe, also posted a 2K14 version on its Soundcloud page. There’s a music video in the works, too. I saw Anamanaguchi perform the song with Bianca Racquel last summer — shout-outs to Adam for getting me in — and it was unbelievable. I hope this single release gets a lot of play and forces them to do more shows together this year.
Here’s Anamanaguchi’s wild DJ set from last night ⊟
In case you missed it last night, chiptune kings Anamanaguchi tore it up with this DJ set livestreamed from a business center at a damn Marriott Hotel probably somewhere in Ohio. What. Skip to 2:30 to start getting turnt up.
We’re seeing these dudes tonight at the Taft Theatre. Anyone else gonna be at that joint?
Anamanaguchi’s “Endless Fantasy” covered with a frickin’ accordion ⊟
I’ve been gathering a number of musicians covering chip and chip covers that I wanted to share. I’ve embedded the rest of them in the post, so please click through to see the rest.
These QR codes for Animal Crossing: New Leaf, though, are free! Props to these frugs for making them:
By the way, did you hear the new intro Anamanaguchi made for the resurrected Retronauts podcast? The first episode from Volume III debuted earlier this week!
Anamanaguchi on Fallon/Late Night
I finally had a chance to catch these guys live at the Echoplex in LA last week, and dudes tore it up. Seriously, it was unreal. See these guys live. I thought I liked Endless Fantasy just a bit, but then I lost my mind when they performed "Prom Night".
Oh, and video might take half a minute to load because Hulu.
More pizza and a new Anamanaguchi music video

Anamanaguchi’s new album streaming on Youtube
I stream like 80% of the music I listen to at my desk on Youtube, so it’s awesome that Anamanaguchi just threw Endless Fantasy on there for anyone to listen to for free!
If you prefer reading about chiptune stuff over listening to the music — or maybe you’re into reading about chiptune junk while listening to it — there are two articles I haven’t read but will link anyway: The Charms of Chiptune (New Yorker) and Anamanaguchi - The Ninja Turtles of Rock (Polygon).
Space Wax America (from ENDLESS FANTASY out May 14th)
Another joint from the new album, which drops any day now. I’m pumped for this, especially after hearing that the 22-track release will feature a number of guest vocalists — you all know that vox chip is my shit. The chiptune band also intends to re-release Endless Fantasy's instrumental tracks with vocal remixes.
Anamanaguchi’s new album and tour kick off really soon, but the chiptune group just launched a Kickstarter to give you more than just another collection of MP3s on your hard drive or a loud show to go to.
If it manages to raise $50,000, the band plans to put out more music videos (see "Meow"), add wild lighting setups to its performances, collab with artists and musicians, put together more interactive web projects, and more.
You’ll get some great pledge rewards for your donations: digital preorders for Endless Fantasy, shirts, posters (the Cory Schmitz/Mare Odomo joint above), vinyl copies of the album, the band’s Game Boys/modded NESes, chiptune workshops, and even Anamanaguchi’s frickin’ van.
Planet (from ENDLESS FANTASY out MAY 14th)
Another new track from Anamanaguchi’s new album, which now has a release date — Endless Fantasy will hit on May 14. Love the album art, too.
♫ Meow ♫ Anamanaguchi’s new single, music video
What is even going on in this video? You have Dark Moon Goths inducting Luke, a go kart race that leaves Peter decapitated, Tumblr employees working the concession stand, some awesome animation, and even a tease of Paul Robertson cats. The song is reckless, too!
You can cop the single for a buck and change at iTunes — the group’s new album, Endless Fantasy, drops this spring.
Today (Smashing Pumpkins)
Anamanaguchi • Scott Pilgrim Demos
The Smashing Pumpkins’ “Today” covered by Anamanaguchi. This isn’t a full song unfortunately, just a rare Scott Pilgrim demo the chiptune group was asked to put together. Perhaps in an alternate world, there is a better, happier version of me listening to a completed version of the track.
Even if this cuts short, this is just the best — it makes today feel like the greatest day. There should be a song about that feeling.
