Anamanaguchi - Summer Singles 2010/2020 (White LP)
Formed in New York in the mid-2000s, Anamanaguchi is a four-piece band made up of Peter Berkman, Ary Warnaar, James DeVito, and Luke Silas. They program and perform loud, fast, intensely emotional digital music. Summer Singles 2010/2020 is a 2xLP set that unites two fan-favorite collections of singles in a first-ever physical edition and confirms Anamanaguchi’s reputation among those in-the-know as one of the most casually trailblazing and unexpectedly refined bands around.
Each eight-song set was originally recorded and released in the wake of a beloved Anamanaguchi album. In 2010, they created the cult-classic soundtrack for Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World: The Game, which was just reissued this January, and cemented their role as pioneers in the homemade, video game world of chiptune music. The 2020 singles followed the critically acclaimed [USA] LP, an album at once more introspective and expansive, which hit No. 3 on Billboard Heatseekers chart and won this praise from NPR: “The sound just fills you up in this incredibly joyous and wonderful way.”
