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.


Lesbian Rainbows

Andre from Lesbian Rainbows came in touch in order to introduce me to their work. Lesbian Rainbows are a Portuguese duo (Andre Fernandes in drums and Rui Martelo in bass/vocals)  and recently they recorded a 4 track jam called "The Holy River".
From their press release:
"The Holy River is the name of a 4 track jam trip performed and recorded in an old abandoned house lost in the middle of the forest, riverside. The first two videos are now available and the other ones will be unleashed very soon. The name of the session is an invocation of the purity and mysticism of this place along with a revisitation (both aesthetic and conceptual) to Alejandro Jodorowsky's filmography (The Holy Mountain)."

Until now they have uploaded the first two tracks called "Torpedo em dia de feira" (which means Torpedo in fair's day) and "A bruxa tirou os dedos da tomada" (which means The witch took her fingers off the switch). Their music is close to Om/Sleep spirit with some post-whatever and mathrock influences in it and at least in their jams a great atmosphere is built. They have recorded their first single too which is going to be released in a while and I'm expecting it with a big interest. You can check their 2 jams below.
