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.


Navel - Neo Noir (2011)

Navel's new album was my first contact with the band. I haven't heard them before and when I found "Neo Noir", I saw them tagged as grunge/alt rock. I don't know if this Swiss trio changed its musical direction in this one but this isn't grunge (at least as I know it). Of course there are grunge influences in it but this dirty,dark,greasy rock album is full of neo-psychedelia, noise rock, post-punk and heavy blues too.. It's impossible to get bored while listening to it. The Black Angels, BRMC, Seattle's scene, White Stripes, Black Keys, Therapy?, Anti-Flag, even Pink Floyd are all part of "Neo Noir". A must-check for everyone...
