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.


Aguaturbia - Psychedelic Drugstore (1970)

Aguaturbia is a Chilean band formed in 1968 and disbanded in 1972. "Psychedelic Drugstore" is actually a compilation of their two albums ("Aguaturbia" and "Volumen 2"). From what I found its release date is 1993 but I'm not sure about it. No matter what, these songs were recorded 40 years ago and they're still fuckin' brilliant.

I mean listen to "Rollin' n' Tumblin" and "Heartbreaker". Or "Waterfall". Absolutely excellent heavy blues rock in Blue Cheer's paths. Don't let female vocals mislead you that they're moving in softer waves. They're groovy, they have soul, they totally rock. In music's overall feeling you can see influences of what US psych scene has offered.

Indisputably they were one of the leading underground acts in South America's scene at this point and this is their testament which I believe you should check out.
