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.


Judd Madden - Drown (2011) & Float (2011)

Judd Madden is a solo artist based in Melbourne, Australia. He is writing, playing, recording, producing all material by himself and he has just released two new albums called "Drown" and "Float".

The first one features seven tracks of groovy instrumental doom/stoner. Nothing radical, just another goood piece of riffy music we all love to hear. Nice 'n' heavy...

"Float" on the other hand while is totally instrumental too, is moving in different paths. It slowly builds a great mellow atmosphere, sometimes through post-rock and others in a more ambient way. In some tracks you can feel a nice desert mesmerizing groove too. Piano and harmonica used in a few parts build a more ethereal sound. Generally is a great album, ideal for the moments you want to relax and free your mind. A "gentle", calm release without denying its heavier aspects.

You can download both his albums for free, as well as his first work "Waterfall" (it's a good one too) released in 2010, from his bandcamp page.
