As you MAY have noticed, I haven't posted for a while now....for a lot of reasons which I don't find necessary to mention. Anyway I decided to put Stoned Sun Vibrations on hiatus and concentrate my efforts to Downtuned Magazine ('n' Radio). Many of you probably know that Downtuned Mag is dedicated to the Greek heavy rock scene but since I've started Downtuned Radio too, I'm thinking of including posts about releases from all over the world. Apparently I'm going to keep a ratio but we'll see how it'll evolve.
From now on, you can find me on Downtuned Mag. And for any bands interested in reviewing/including them in radio's rotation etc., you can come in touch with me through the contact form over there. As I wrote above. I'll try to keep a ratio and at least in the beginning I'll try to "promote" mostly "smaller", more independent bands that deserve your attention.
So I want to thank each and everyone of you out there who supported, read, promoted and helped this blog. Also a big fat thanks to all the bands which helped SSV in their own way.
That's all for now folks! Thanks again! Maybe SSV will be back someday. Or maybe Downtuned will become better than SSV.... Who knows.
Be well and stay heavy!
PS: Rock Trips Mixtapes will be back soon.... They'll be the only thing posted from now on. Perhaps some other personal comps too.



Juneau is a mid-90's droney space rock trio from Boston (not to be confused to Houston's Juneau). Guitarists Marc Orleans (Sunburned Hand Of The Man), Christian Hedlund and drummer John Widger are the guys behind Juneau and they released one cassette,two albums and a 7" split with Foom. Here you can find the "Space is Hot" LP and the S/T CD.
"Space is Hot" is moving in more heavy psych/space paths while the S/T is more lo-fi and droney. Nevertheless, they are two awesome works from a band quite unknown.
If I have to compare them with other bands I would say Spacemen3,Bardo Pond or a calmer version of High Rise.
(Actually,my personal favorite is "Space is Hot" which gives me a good noisy-psych-jam feeling.)
