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.


Plastic Villains - Whoever You Are Today EP (2011)

Coming from San Francisco, Plastic Villains are a newly formed band (they're together a year) and in November they released their second EP called "Whoever You Are Today". What I like in these guys is that they sound really fresh and in a way "uplifting". The EP features six tracks moving in psych garage-blues rock rhythms with a small pinch of power pop (in a couple of tracks). The band is solid like they're together for years and  definitely have great songwriting skills. Taking in consideration that they're together as a band for a few months, I expect a lot by them...  If you like Black Keys then this is for you...

Download it for free from their bandcamp page. You can also download their debut EP.
