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.


Dreamtime - Dreamtime EP (2011)

I've recently discovered Dreamtime, a trio from Brisbane, Australia. Probably someone suggested them to me but I can't even remember who did it. Anyway, Dreamtime released their self-titled EP in January and in a few days they're going to release their first LP (which you can hear it and order it in their bandcamp page). The EP features four great slabs of - mainly late 60's influenced - psychedelic jams. All of them are moving in "ritualistic" acid paths with a lot of loops as well as bursts of heavy psych distorted guitars followed by mellow, meditative vocals. Colour Haze-like riffage and stoner rock's grooves are present too which make their sound even richer. Personally I can't wait for their LP...

You can download their EP for free from their bandcamp page.
