The AP.net staff is here to help you soundtrack your summer with a playlist each Friday for the next several weeks. Today, I've probably got the opposite to last weeks gym playlist by Jake Denning. I've been on holiday for the past week and I like sea gazing (and having a little existential crisis whilst doing so) and semi enjoying the sun and breeze that comes with being on a tropical island so I put together a playlist to bring a little bit of sunshine to your weekend. This is the part party, part "chill and watch the waves come in" playlist.

There is also links to playlists below with artists from the feature.

Five Finger Death Punch's singer Ivan L. Moody has been accused of domestic abuse.
She says she eventually went to sleep, and woke up with Ivan's arms around her neck in a Jiu-Jitsu submission hold. She says he then repeatedly punched her and choked her with a blanket. Moody was arrested for domestic violence but the charges were dropped. The rest of the divorce docs paint a similar picture of abuse, with injuries that include a bloody eye and busted blood vessels.

Claire Groden, writing for Fortune:
While Spotify will probably keep offering a free version of music streaming, non-paying users should expect big limitations starting next year. For example, non-paying users might only be able to access one or two songs from a popular album. And new albums could be delayed until after a launch period, or free users might only have a specific amount of time to stream music.

Sesame Street is coming to HBO.
According to The New York Times, the show's nonprofit parent group Sesame Workshop has struck a deal with HBO to host its next five seasons starting this fall. The new deal will allow the workshop to product 35 episodes a year, almost twice as many as it currently makes. It also accommodates two upcoming spinoff series, one of which is an original educational property ostensibly separate from the world of the Muppets.
