A Day in the Life: Anamanaguchi

Unless you have experience with chip-tune, the idea of songs made using old video game systems may sound like a gimmick or lifestyle music for the gaming culture. The truth about New York four-piece Anamanaguchi is their music is danceable, spirited indie pop that taps into a nostalgic realm you might not know you have. For a band that is still under the radar in the blogosphere, their resume indicates they are getting a lot of love from somewhere, capped by a recent appearance on Fallon, their song being used as theme for Chris Hardwick’s The Nerdist Podcast, and, at the time of writing, has the third most successful Kickstarter campaign ever, behind the divisive Amanda Palmer and someone named Carman Licciardello.

In support of recent LP ‘Endless Fantasy,’ the band recently played The Constellation Room in Santa Ana, Calif to a sold-out crowd and photographer Philip Cosores was there to spend the afternoon with the band as they prepared to show-off their impressive live show, aided by Kickstarter-funded lighting that you usually don’t get in small club.
