Ah, this is it, the last bit of year-end list nonsense and seeing as we're 'on a break' for the holidays let's keep this pre-typed pre-blather to a minimum.
It's Friday and on DiS throughout 2009 that meant we did a Spotify playlist to compliment our editorial (archived here). Yeah, it is not unlike a covermount cassette wot you used to get on Melody Maker (RIP). Simply CLICK THIS LINK and you'll be whisked to the founder and current editor of this websites top 40 songs of the year playlist. They're not in any particular order per se, more-so organised into a listenable flow - yeah, not unlike a proper mixtape, just without all that pause button bashing ballache.
