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.


Otehi - Noisy Spirit (2011)

Coming from my country's "neighborhood", this Italian trio released their first EP called "Noisy Spirit" delivering seven tracks of trippy psych stoner excellence and of course fill us with expectations for more things to come. Monolithic grooves side-by-side with fuzzed out riffs, covered by psychedelic smoke from holy bongs... The noisy spirit which possessed them, leads them in the rights paths... And although the production is quite raw, it doesn't reduces its listening experience. If you're into the wider area of psych stoner rock from Dozer and Colour Haze to Kyuss and Sleep then this is something you're going to love. Not forget to mention the awesome artwork too...
*Thanks to the guys from Otehi for coming in touch and providing us with a free download of their work
