NELLIE MCKAY, ''THE BIG ONE''
Hair-metal guitars, hip-hop drums, and barreling keys meet on this biting track from the New York City-based sassy songstress. The tune is taken from her upcoming album, Pretty Little Head. Download it for free at her site

THE PLASTIC CONSTELLATIONS, ''IRON CITY JUNGLES''
Somewhere between the mondo riffage of My Chemical Romance and the raggedness of Fugazi lies this whirl of kamikaze punk. Download it for free at their site

QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, ''BURN THE WITCH (REMIX)''
Straight from the California desert, these urchins of rawk offer a pared-down take on their creepy dirge courtesy of remix pros U.N.K.L.E. Like an unwrapped Halloween treat, it's a bit dangerous. Buy the track on iTunes

THE NATIONAL TRUST, ''IT'S JUST CRUEL''
The indie-funk duo recruited R. Kelly's engineer to smooth out their falsetto-laced songs, and the move proves masterful on this infectious dance-soul anthem. Download it for free at Thrill Jockey Records
