Airbrushed



Anamanaguchi although hard to pronounce, is an emerging chiptune band from New York City. This genre doesn't receive much hype as it is still generally unknown. What is chiptune? Chiptune uses synthesizers to make music resembling that of a video game from the NES era. Anamanaguchi has their artwork done by Paul Robertson giving it that extra flare and making it stand out just that much more.

What sets Anamanaguchi apart is that they actually use a hacked NES and a hacked Gameboy to make their tunes. Also, they incorporate live guitar, bass and drums to perk up the song that extra bit.

Being video game driven, it is only appropriate that they were asked to make the soundtrack to the Scott Pilgrim Video Game, and it is just as catchy as any of their other work. This song entitled Airbrushed is a single, and probably their best work yet. I found this song a couple of days ago and have listened to it non stop since. It is vibrant and fast and will put a jump in your step no matter what situation you are in.

Give it a listen and make those worries go away. Enjoy.
