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.


This Is Nowhere - This Is Nowhere 7" (2011)

Just yesterday I was first introduced to This Is Nowhere, a Greek new-psych band from Thessaloniki and they really got my full attention from the first second…

Formed in 2009, they have released this s/t 7” and a soundtrack for Bryony Lavery’s play “Frozen” (which I didn’t have the chance to check it yet, except its last track which can be found in their myspace).

Their 7” consists of two tracks, “Perfect Helpless” and “Wilderness Part 2”, which are excellent pieces of dark downtuned bluesy-punk, lost in space paths.

“Perfect Helpless” is moving in a noisier, up-tempo way and has some wonderful bursts in it. While “Wilderness Part 2” is slower and takes you in a mesmerizing trip deep in their universe. What a great contrast of “light” and “shadow”!

If Spacemen 3, Wooden Shjips, Black Angels mean something to you then check these bass-worshippers and definitely you won’t be disappointed. Their trip to nowhere has just begun…
