Song Pick of the Week

Sunna were something of an oddity. They were formed in Bristol, England in 1998 by a one-time Massive Attack collaborator, but were often compared to early 90s grunge bands. One Minute Science, their debut album, showed that they were more than a one-note band as it ran the gamut from acoustic ballads to industrial metal stompers with the only common element being the dark and brooding atmosphere found throughout. Many considered the band to be Britian's next big thing, but the group disappeared after only one album.

From what I've heard of Sunna's lone release over the years it is a little too schizophrenic for my liking, but a few of the songs have always stuck with me. The track One Conditioning combines the band's more subdued side with its industrial leanings to create a moody composition featuring music box chimes and hushed vocals. It is a great rainy day type of song and worth a listen. As Ali G would say, "Check it."

Also, I've been thinking about putting together a melancholy mixed CD of sorts lately. That's not my usual type of thing though, so I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions?
