I dunno about you but I have a horrible hangover from a Thursday night out without any dinner. If you think you can spot any sophisticated themes going on with this playlist it wasn't intended, it's simply a mixture of what was written about on the site this week that I wanted to quilt my addled mind with.
If you don't know the dealio already then these weekly mixtape-like playlists are simply just a collection of songs with links to content wot were published on DiS this week. CLICK HERE to fire up the playlist in Spotify (available for free in most countries here) and listen whilst reading all the below if you haven't done so already...
