The AP.net staff is here to help you soundtrack your summer with a playlist each Friday for the next several weeks. Last week, Craig M. offered up his playlist of roots music, and this week I'm taking things to the dance floor. That's right, this week's theme is dance music since the bright and colorful sounds of the genre go hand in hand with the summer weather (that is, when it isn't raining relentlessly like it is here right now). So put on your dancing shoes and check out the playlist in the replies.

Nadya Tolokonnikova (of Pussy Riot), writing for VICE, about her recent arrest on Russia Day, her experience in prison, and starting two non-profit organizations. Tolokonnikova will continue to write for VICE bi-weekly, detailing the various injustices in present-day Russia.
Prison can change people like boiling water changes objects. Something soft, like an egg, can become hard; something hard, like a carrot, can become soft. Instant coffee, on the other hand, fades into its surroundings. The moral of the story is this: Be like coffee. In prison, I was coffee.

This week's episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast begins with some sports talk before pivoting into our favorite Star Wars scenes, I guess we learned we're the kind of nerds that like sports and science fiction. Weird. The main topics looked at this week are the new albums from Knuckle Puck and Neck Deep, which really serves as the jumping off point for a discussion around the "hierarchy" of pop-punk and why it always becomes a topic for us. After going deep on pop-punk we discuss a user submitted question about how we decide what music to keep on our iPhones and how we decide what gets deleted or not. We end talking about Thomas's night-out on the town where he got to hear the new Frank...
Last weekend at Pinkpop festival in the Netherlands, the singer of John Coffey was standing on the crowd when a beer came flying his way ... and you won't believe what happens next! Ok, well, because I'm not those guys ... he catches said beer, drinks it, and drops it behind him. Video is in the replies. At least it wasn't bread.
"I wanted the end [of the song] to be sung by an American woman [pretending] to be Christa," Turner said of the song 'Silent Key'. "The record label were suggesting some of the more famous people that Butch has worked with, like, fucking Taylor Swift. No contact was ever made but they were like, 'Let's ask Taylor'. I was like, 'That's a fucking rubbish idea'."
British rock band Muse achieves its first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200, as its seventh studio effort, Drones, bows atop the list.

Every year, I get one email from one person asking me to make a post on AP.net about their birthday. That person is Gunz from The Gunz Show and today is his birthday. Today is also Jack Barakat's birthday, and he got an early birthday present this year when All Time Low's Future Hearts was the best-selling album in the world, so you shouldn't feel the need to go shopping for him now. Good job to both of these people for surviving one more year.
Watch Wolf Alice perform the brilliant "You're A Germ" live at their roots back at The Monarch in Camden, London by heading to the replies. The band's unpredictable and diverse debut album My Love Is Cool is released next week.
The Maccabees have unveiled the video for their new single "Something Like Happiness". The second in a series of three videos, the beautiful clip which features shots of Elephant & Castle in London (where their studio is) for this year's perfect summer love song anthem can be seen in the replies.
Director, Joe Connor: "Throughout this whole collaboration, The Maccabees main point was to make the mundane seem amazing, the grotesque beautiful and the forgotten prominent. It's a theme that permeates their whole album and in this video I was desperate to focus on the beauty that can be found in a much derided area. Everything you see in these images is really there, nothing is added, it...
I recently spoke to Zac Eisenstein of Man Overboard while the band was rehearsing for the Vans Warped Tour. You can catch the band all summer long on the Unicorn Main Stage. Their fourth full-length album, Heavy Love, drops June 30th via Rise Records - you can pre-order it here. Head here for the interview.
Honestly, the hardest part was not saying something that would almost be too real or blow up my spot too much, to the point where people in my life are like “What the fuck, you’re singing about all our shit on a record!” That’s where I had to watch it, and Bill and I would have conversations like “What’s crossing the line?” But you can’t be rolling everybody that’s in your life every...
Four years ago I paraphrased a comedian's tasteless joke on Twitter. In no way does it reflect who I am as a person or how I view women. I regret posting such a thoughtless comment and sincerely apologize to anyone I've offended.
Tony Perry from Pierce the Veil was in a mountain biking accident in which he needed to be hospitalized. Per Vic Fuentes' Instagram, "He sustained 3 broken ribs, a torn shoulder, collapsed lung and a broken sternum, for which he needed immediate surgery to repair." He will miss a part of Warped Tour and Jesse Barrera will be filling in for him.
