1. Santogold, “Lights Out”

On this new track from her awesome, just-leaked debut, Santogold tells you to “turn out the light” and promises not to “worry you’re not the type.” It seems pretty charitable of her given that you do nothing but sit around reading blogs all day. [Nasty Panda]

2. Usher feat. Beyoncé and Lil Wayne, “Love in This Club (Part 2)”
Usher remixes his hit about making love right in a club and fails to make it sound any more sanitary. [Ali’s Blog via Idolator]

3. Radiohead, “House of Cards” (live on Conan)
In honor of Earth Day this week, Radiohead avoided a carbon-expending plane trip and played Late Night With Conan O’Brien via satellite from England, impressively proving that it’s possible to be benevolent and lazy at the same. [Culture Bully]

4. Grizzly Bear, “While You Wait for the Others” (live on Conan)
Luckily Grizzly Bear live in New York and were able to make it to the Conan set without destroying the environment. [Music Slut]

5. Vampire Weekend, “Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa” (live on Jimmy Kimmel)
For their Kimmel appearance, VW not only flew to California but also bussed in an entire high-school drum line, tempting an environmental apocalypse. [Stereogum]
