For those unfamiliar with the band, the Guchi guys use hacked NESes in tandem with real instruments to create their music. That means high energy chip-tunes infused with super awesome, ultra-sonic rock and sick, electronic beats! This is also the first time the guys have used vocals in some of their songs, which I was a little unsure about before I heard the the album. I'm pleased to report, however, that the vocals work perfectly in the few songs that do have them.
The opening title-track and advance single Meow showcase strong instrumental hooks at rapid-fire pacing, creating the kind of music youd imagine a music nerd spinning at the gym. Highly active and engaging music with creative sonics doesnt tend to be easily dismissible, and Anamanaguchi play these songs with sweat-dripping intensity that is always respectable, even when overwhelming the senses.
But its songs like Prom Night and Japan Air that take Anamanaguchis sound and make it round, with pop vocals at times proving the project dynamic but not overshadowing the typically instrumental majority. Rather, the vocals give Anamanaguchi open doors for which to test, push, and expand their range.
Pulling in elements of chiptune, rock and roll, disco, and breakbeat and injecting it all with pure unadulterated JOY! I can't remember the last time music made me smile this wide. These guys are bursting with joyous energy. Intricate melodies chirp and whirl their way through driving beats and a throbbing rhythm section.
