Video Alert: ‪Xinobi “(I Hate The Sound of) Guitars‬”‪ ‬via ‪Discotexas‬—EDM Culture Meet Irony

Video Alert: ‪Xinobi “(I Hate The Sound of) Guitars‬”‪ ‬via ‪Discotexas‬

Xinobi’s new single has EDM culture 2012 written all over it—in an ironic, catchy sorta way. The first thing that popped into my head when I saw this video is, “oh shit, I’m not the only lover of electronic music that appreciates Arthur Brown.” The reference is there, albeit stepped in irony. If you’re wondering whom the fuck Arthur Brown is (it’s ok, he’s an old-timer), he’s the original theatrical rocker. Before Alice Cooper, before Kiss, before Marilyn Mason…there was Arthur Brown and none of those shock rock acts would have been possible without Arthur Brown.

I love the fact that “(I Hate The Sound of) Guitars” is a little dark, a tad uplifting while being simultaneously discordant, melodic and epic all at the same time. It’s a party track, but that’s not all it is.

If you like what you hear, you can pick up the single now here. For vinyl lovers, there’s a limited and numbered edition of 200 copies in white vinyl with a silkscreened image on the B-side.
