Best of NYC #36: Anamanaguchi

Best of NYC #36: Anamanaguchi

We continue our "Best of NYC Countdown", covering every day one of the artists that made our Year End Best of NYC list (a chart compiled by a jury comprised of local bloggers, music writers, promoters, record store personnel and DJs).

Anamanaguchi’s primary instrument is a hacked 1985 Nintendo, manipulated into creating the group’s own brand of energetic electro-punk. These 8 bit blips are later layered with guitars and added synths so to rattle speakers as well as maintaining their retro charm. Their new record Dawn Metropolis utilises these simple instruments to create wistful melodies that evoke feelings of adventure and excitement. “I am a hyperactive and really positive dude”, leading man Pete Berkman assures me. “The music I write tends to be a headphone-out from my brain; all extremely frantic, hyper-melodic, and uplifting.” - Dean Van Nguyen
