Anamanaguchi: “So Bored”

Anamanaguchi - Blip Festival

While we’re on the cover tip, check out this never-saw-this-coming gem from rising chiptune stars Anamanaguchi. These 8-bit guitar heroes reconstruct the noisy lo-fi of Wavves’ depressive slacker anthem “So Bored” through processed guitars and NES boom-blip. Once you move past that initial unexpectedness, this cover really makes perfect sense. I mean, what’s more lo-fi than modifying old Nintendo systems to play music?
