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.


The Hedgehogs - Depths (2011)

The Hedgehogs are a psych-garage quartet from Aalborg, Denmark and I'm very happy for "discovering" them... Mainly inspired from Austin, Texas psych-scene of the 60's - 70's, they successfully combine this era's pscyh-o-garage-blues sound with more contemporary neo-psychedelic slabs. Depths is a live recording teaser which they recorded as a preview for their tonight's (21/10/11) show in Loppen, Copenhagen (in a small psych-fest with Troldmand and Papir) and it features two amazing long-enough (24min and 15min) jams. I have nothing more to say besides that they're great and you should check them. A not-miss! Got to see them live too (their gigs are a hell of a freak-out party).

You can download "Depths" as well as some other live recordings and jams from their bandcamp page for free. Enjoy!!!

Take A Look:


  1. Scott from OSC introduced me to them. I dig these trippy jams.

  2. For those interested, a recording of the show The Hedgehogs did at loppen, after releasing this album, is now avalible for free at their bandcamp page. 50 minutes of mindblowing improvised, repetive heavy psychedelia.
