In this week's five best songs: pop gets sad, sexy, and synth. Plus nightmare techno and neo-classical doom. Your ears were made for this moment.

Bat For Lashes, "Skin Song"

"The attention to detail and reverent air makes it an ode to her longest serving war buddy rather than a eulogy."

A Winged Victory for the Sullen, "Atomos VI"

"You can also simply read the band's name for a sense of the competing emotional resonances it spars with: a concert hall rigged for demolition, or a priceless violin cutting through the fingers of its handler."

Demdike Stare, "Procrastination"

"Beneath all the shock and awe, "Procrastination" is cinder techno."

Zammuto, "Great Equator"

Zammuto - Great Equator (Official Music Video)

"The track is another multidimensional charmer for the art-pop architect behind The Books, vivacious during its droney plods (Zammuto's billowy cooing helps there) and scattered during a candy heart string of synth zaps."

Ken Park, "Stay At Mine"
