"Anamanaguchi is a chiptune indie rock or 'chip-punk' band from New York City that 'makes loud, fast music with an NES from 1985.' The band has four members: lead songwriter Peter Berkman, bassist James DeVito, guitarist Ary Warnaar and drummer Luke Silas.
Like other chiptune artists, Anamanaguchi creates music using video game hardware from the mid-to-late 1980s: namely an NES and a Game Boy. Berkman has stated that their music isn't just based around video game music and that much of it is inspired by '[s]imple pop stuff, like Weezer and the Beach Boys.'"
Crashfaster is a four-bodied hive mind from San Francisco, California that combines the gritty chip sounds of Gameboy, NES and C64 with hard-hitting rock and both synthetic and human vocals to form a completely original, hybrid electro-chip-rock experience.
The soundtrack to every time you've dreamed about the far reaches of space, the waves washing over a neon beach, forbidden android romance or giant mechs battling for your planet. Slime Girls is a three piece super squad that combines melodic electronic washes of sound from repurposed Nintendo Gameboys, energetic drums and unrelenting guitars. Digital Punk Rock Spirit.
