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.


Crystal Antlers

While we're waiting for Crystal Antlers' new album ("Two-Way Mirror") to be released on 12th July, I think it's a good chance to remember their previous works.

Crystal Antlers is a band from Long Beach, California formed in late 2006. Started as a trio and with time evolved in a 5-piece band (a full bio is available here), they have released so far three singles, one EP and a full album.

It's quite hard to fit their music into a genre. If I have to choose one I would say experimental psych. The music's style not only change during the EP/album but also inside each track too. You can find from post-rock to Japanese noise, from punk to garage fuzz and back to kraut-rock.

I won't get in more details about their sound, I just leave their music do the talking. I suggest them to all the fans of experimental and psych stuff. I believe you'll all find something to like about them!
