The costar of NBC’s Parks and Recreation will host the MTV Movie Awards on June 6. He’s also a major music fan. Here’s what he’s been listening to lately.

++ Crystal Castles, ”Celestica”
”Crystal Castles specialize in beautiful, catchy eight-bit techno-y music. Such a nice, sweet song. The perfect jam to make out with your Xbox 360 to on those lonely nights. Not that I’ve ever done that.”

++ Jay Electronica featuring Diddy, ”Ghost of Christopher Wallace”
”The sickest beat of 2010? Maybe. Also, Diddy yells random stuff over the last three minutes. Can’t beat that.”

++ Duran Duran, ”The Chauffeur”
”Remembered how great this song was when I heard it in the excellent Noah Baumbach film Greenberg.”

++ LCD Soundsystem, ”All I Want”
”The new LCD album is probably my top album of 2010. If I wrote a song called ‘All I Want,’ it would be about how all I want are delicious tacos. This song is not about that, but I don’t hold it against it.”

++ Beach House, ”Lover of Mine”
”One of many beautiful slow jams from my other favorite album of 2010. Beach House are the indie-rock R. Kelly. (Kind of.)”
