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.


Max Headroom - Stonerman's Friend (2011)

Many of you probably are familiar with Max Headroom's character and M.H. broadcast signal intrusion.. Not that has anything to do with the music here just an info from where the guys took their name. Anyway I recently found out about this power trio from Leiden, NL through an awesome youtube channel (orangesunshine6969, check it out for some really goood music). They formed in 2010 and they're currently working on their album.
This release is a collection of M.H.'s session recordings but nevertheless it is pretty damn good!! It features ten (mostly) instrumental tracks with total playing time of almost 2 hours. Great improvised stoner / desert rock jams full of psychedelia compiling a wonderful trip from desert to space and back. Recommended for fans of Colour Haze, Los Natas, 35007... Can't wait for a "proper" album by these guys...

You can download it for free from here.
