With the excitement surrounding Nightmare of You and Armor For Sleep playing shows again, I recently found myself inspired to look back on bands that left us all too soon. So today's playlist, brought to you by yours truly, is a hazy trip down memory lane.

Check out the playlist in the replies and break out the tissues - this might be a hard one to get through.

Every year seems like "the best year for music since (insert year here)," and 2015 is no different. As we put our Mid-Year Top 10 albums together, many writers had to make changes at the last minute - there is too much good music out there. First world problems aside, we have listened to an abundance of great albums this year, so we picked our Top 10 favourites for you all to check out. From Kendrick Lamar to The Sidekicks to Jamie xx, you can expect to find all sorts of albums in our collective or individual lists. Head over to the replies to check it all out, and make sure to join the discussion - we would love to hear about your favourite albums of 2015. Enjoy!

The AP.net staff is here to bring you a different playlist every Friday to soundtrack your summer. Last week, we took your suggestions and crafted a Feel Good Hits of the Summer Playlist. This week, things are getting a little bit darker. We're taking you to one of the staples of summer: the late night drive. This is one to throw on while your aimlessly cruising through the backstreets at 3 AM. So roll those windows down, and check out the playlist in the replies.

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.

The AP.net staff is here to help you soundtrack your summer with a playlist each Friday for the next several weeks. Last week, Ryan D. shared his playlist of summer jams. This week, I'm here to take things in a completely different direction: roots music. From folk and alt-country to Americana and classic rock 'n' roll, this playlist encompasses the genres that have said "summer" to me longest. Whether you're heading out of town for a road trip or sitting on the porch drinking a beer late at night, this mix is ideal.

The AP.net staff is here to help you soundtrack your summer with a playlist each Friday for the next several weeks. The first installment in the series comes courtesy of yours truly, and let me tell you, it should be a federal crime for songs like Fetty Wap's "RGF Island" and Taylor Swift's "New Romantics" to not be on every single Summer 2k15 playlist. Alas, they aren't available on streaming services so I couldn't include them here. However, I did assemble a collection of songs that I think make a pretty damn good beach or BBQ soundtrack, which you can check out in the replies via Spotify and Rdio.
