1. Bruce Springsteen, "A Night With The Jersey Devil"
This Halloween, the Boss is dressing up as his hometown bogeyman (though he sounds more like Tom Waits) and dropping a free mp3 into his fans' trick-or-treat bags. [Stereogum]

2. A.C. Newman, "There Were Maybe Ten Or Twelve"
Being the driving force behind the New Pornographers, there are probably more than just "maybe ten or twelve things [he] can teach" most aspiring songwriters, and many of them are on full display in this new track from the forthcoming Get Guilty. [The Catbirdseat]

3. Black Kids feat. Lil Wayne, "Not Gonna Teach Him (The Twelves Kickmix)"
The Black Kids aren't going to teach your boyfriend how to dance, but they might give Lil Wayne a few pointers on this electro-remix by the Twelves. [White Folks Get Crunk]

4. Deerhunter, "Saved By Old Times"
In a live studio session, Cox (playing everything all by himself) has his Halloween saved by his own old times, when he gets to sing a new version of this Microcastle track about "Victorian vampires with elaborate designs." [Pitchfork]

5. Daedelus, "Fair Weather Friends (The Death Set Reset)"
The Death Set prove their devotion to Daedelus and his bouncy original with this awesome dance-floor remix. [Trash Menagerie]
