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.


Shallow - 16 Sunsets In 24 Hours (2000)

Shallow were formed in the mid-90's and they were British quartet playing some really cool stoner rock with pinches of swirling psychedelia and alternative rock. "16 Sunsets In 24 Hours" was their only album released in 2000. They previously released a (4-track I think) EP called "Live At Heimi Hendersons". I'm really enjoying this record each time I listen to it, especially for its chill-out feeling. Of course it isn't something extraordinary but overall is a quality work with cool tunes and melodies which definitely gives you some really good time and worths a check. They changed their name after this one (there was already a US band called Shallow) to The Last Drop and they came to surface again in 2002 with their second album called "Where Were You Livin' a Year From Now?".
