Unshine Update

If you haven't heard of Unshine before, I suggest you get on YouTube and start listening!  I stumbled across them a few years ago and really liked what I heard, then I kind of got distracted with other stuff, and they fell out of my regular queue of listening.  Then, they came back to my awareness over the summer via, and I realized how much I missed them and how much I was missing out by not listening to them very often.  They are ridiculously underrated.

Hailing from Finland, this female-fronted band has a Gothic-y kind of feel but their lyrical themes have a lot to do with Celtic & pagan stuff, and myth & legend.  Their singer, Susana Vesilahti has a unique voice for the genre.  They have two albums, and recently, Unshine announced that album #3 will be released in early 2012.  They aren't signed with a label at this particular time.

Here is a sample of 4 songs off the upcoming album:

And here are a couple of faves from previous albums.
