Earlier in the week we got to see Interpol took to the television screens with a great performance of "Evil" on Last Call with Carson Daly. Choosing to go with the older track from their second album, Antics, earlier on in week, last night the band chose a newer track when they took to Conan O'Brien's late night slot. The band performed "Lights" which features on their latest LP which is self titled. To pick yourself up a copy of the album head on over here. Check out the performance for yourself at the top and if you want more information about the guys, head on over to their official site where you can also catch the dates for their April tour. Thanks to our friends over at The Audio Perv for the video.

Oh Cee-Lo, I'm so glad that you have an odd sense of humor and that you are so tight with Danger Mouse, because it makes this parody of "The Ghost Inside" that much more amusing. Cee-Lo's version, "The Ol' Sauseej" is about, well, sausages. It starts of sounding like he's hungry and then you get the feeling that maybe talking about food made him a bit horny, as sausage takes on a different meaning in the second half of the song. Either way, we had a good laugh at it. If you like what you hear below you can download it over here.
Cage The Elephant have paid a visit to Fuel TV and put down a solid performnce of their single "Shake Me Down". We've previously seen that they can lay down this track live on Jimmy Kimmel and David Letterman. When performing in the late night slots the boys just get down to business and for Fuel TV it was no different. It features on their latest album, Thank You, Happy Birthday, and you can pick it up now by simply heading over here. Enjoy another nice performance from the boy above.
Last year Spoon paid a visit to the good people over at La Blogotheque and the guys over there were a little anxious when the band arrived at the venue to play the songs for them. However, the atmosphere in the room at the beginning caused by Britt Daniel seeming a little distant was short lived, as soon as the band began to play the first chord of "The Ghost of You Lingers" the atmosphere changed, and as they put it, there was no need for words. Above you can see why with the performance of that track along with "Got Nuffin" and then after the jump you can check them out performing "Black Like Me". Both were recorded for The Take-Away shows which see's La Blogotheque invite bands tom play in the streets, bars, elevators, and as you see here a café or two for the world to see. Head on over here to check out more of these great performances.
Take a listen to this lovely funky feeling remix of Cold War Kids' new album title track "Mine is Yours", which has been created by the brooklyn based Yeasayer. Courtesy of The Fader you can even grab yourself the download down at the bottom. The original version of the track, "Mine is Yours", features on the brand new album from Cold War Kids which has a few ridiculously catchy tunes on it. This version slows it down a little throwing in some digital retro beats and keys to make a great feeling track. Head on over here to pick yourself up a copy of the new CWK album.
