When I heard Anamanaguchi's first LP, Dawn Metropolis (2009), I was certain they were a flash-in-the-pan gimmick, destined to collapse at the first sign of a dusty Nintendo or their own boredom. Two years and one Scott Pilgrim videogame soundtrack later, Anamanaguchi and their NES are still infusing poppy guitar, bass, and drum songs with mid-'80s nostalgia. These guys play against a backdrop of neuron-collapsing animation and one song blends into the next—but the songs are darn infectious. Certain people may even feel compelled to jump up and down.
