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.


The Cosmic Dead - The Cosmic Dead (2011,Cassette)

Today I opened my mailbox and I found an email from the guys behind The Cosmic Dead. I haven't heard anything from them before so I checked them right away...And then,WOW! Hell yeah! I was found in front of a surprise. My mind starting to melt while weird outer-space images intruded my eyeballs. I was popping-up among universes and introducing myself to weird little colorful creatures.

Back to reality now..I had quite a long time to hear a new release like this one. It's a perfect acid-soaked psych/kraut/space trip far above our universe. These space travellers from Glasgow,create one of the most astonishing releases for this year. It's inspirational,it's trippy..it's the right psych deal. Just think about that their debut will be out on the German label "Who Can You Trust? Records" which is the same label released White Hills' "Live on WFMU", Sylvester Anfang II "Buda Rehearsals" and Gnod's "Livebirth".

The cassette will be out somewhere in late April, it's a 4 track affair, 40 minutes each side, tracks 1-3 on side A, and track 4 filling all of side B! Since then check their tracks on MySpace and Soundcloud or get album's 2nd track "Spice Melange Spectrum" from here.
*Thanks to the guys from The Cosmic Dead for sending their work
