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.


Solarfeast - Gossamer (1995)

Here is an interesting release for those into stoner/desert scene. Gossamer is Solarfeast's first (and only release) back from 1995. The band's line-up is interesting too: Armand (Nick) Nava (The Jack Saints, Hornss), Chris Cockrell (Vic Du Monte, Kyuss), Mike Moracha (The Jack Saints, Hornss), Tony Tornay (Fatso Jetson) and it was produced by Brant Bjork.

Basically it's  desert rock mixed up with psych, noise and mainly with punk (more than you expect). Obviously the production isn't its highlight but it has this 90's dirty feeling and definitely you have some great time listening to it. So, if you like plenty of punk in your stoner (or vice versa) check this piece of the scene's history.
