The Scotch Snap: T in the Park and stealing U2's millions

It was T in the Park this week, where Scottish folks got boozy, stood around in the rain and did things they regretted. No change there then. But there was some music too.

Adam Clayton's personal assistant was found guilty of stealing £2.2m from him. Find out what she spent it on to keep herself incognito.

We've also got a look at some great stuff from Germany, some new Lana Del Rey, the Vaccines and all the badness in the world trapped in one place.

Releases shown: Lana Del Rey - National Anthem (out now); The Vaccines - No Hope (out now); David Guetta and Chris Brown - I Can Only Imagine (out now); Sasse - Der Groove (from The Third Encounter, out now); Meursault - Lament for a Teenage Millionaire (from Something for the Weakened, out July 16).

*Musical note: the Scotch Snap technically consists of a stressed (ie on the beat) sixteenth note, or semiquaver, followed by a dotted eighth note or quaver. Usually dotted rythms have the longer note first; it is that reversal of expectation that makes the snap so distinctive. It is a key rhythmic signature of Scottish traditional music.
