I SEEM TO BE LISTENING TO MUSIC BY THE 5's LATELY. 'Tis the season for new albums, with many of my favourites coming out of the woodwork. Martha Wainwright's new single, "Proserpina" is the last song her mother ever wrote, and it's duly gut-wrenching. (It should be noted, the rest of the album doesn't quite stand up to this track.) Sia wrote "My Love" for the Twilight soundtrack, though it stands on its own as some of her best songwriting. Also, Ellie Goulding's new album has been playing constantly; more consistent than her last, Halcyon is heavy and pulsating, its title a bit of a misnomer. "My Blood" is a good representation of the album's tone, which is hardly peaceful. And Bat for Lashes released her third album this week. Included here is "Oh Yeah", but look for a more in-depth review of The Haunted Man soon.

But it's Loreen I want to talk about. If you haven't heard of the former Swedish Idol contestant (but don't let that stop you) she's neat. Dance music with a soul, this girl can saaaang. Her parents are Moroccan, but she was raised in Sweden, which lends itself to this moody, sexy, beats-laden aesthetic. It's kind of indescribable. She's something like Jessie Ware and Sade and all that kind of pulsating electronic/dance/soul/R&B thing. See what you think, cuz I dig it bigtime.

Just a handful. Enjoy.

1. Proserpina - Martha Wainwright
2. My Love - Sia
3. Everytime - Loreen
4. My Blood - Ellie Goulding
5. Oh Yeah - Bat for Lashes
