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.


Desert Wizards - Desert Wizards (2011)

Desert Wizards are a quartet from Ravenna, Italy and they released an amazingly emotional, dreamy, warm, hard psych album. DW were formed in 2007, they released a self-financed EP in 2008 and a self-financed album in 2009 called "Dos". This year they released this same-titled record through Black Widow which is actually a newer version of "Dos". Great 70's-inspired hard psych with trippy (male and female) vocals blended with some of stoner's sound characteristics. Cool guitar and organ work moving from heavier paths to more melodic and back accompanied by spacey ideas. Overall it's one of the most dynamic neo-psych album I've heard this year. I wasn't bored or tired for a single moment and I highly recommend it. I'm waiting to hear more stuff like this one from these guys...
