Do Me A Favour! (A DiS helping hand thread)


#1

The DiS genie grants you one favour from this great collective community a day…what can we help you with?

So my favour for today: I’m trying to get two 40-50 minute walks in daily to get fitter and stuff and would like the DiS community to suggest me 2 albums for tomorrow’s journeys. Thanks!


#2

are you looking for recent albums, or just anything that might be a good soundtrack for a walk?


#3

anything at all, hopefully it’s something I haven’t heard before. Preferably something fairly upbeat or with interesting production flourishes idk.


#4

have you listened to william onyeabor much? if not, then i’d recommend pretty much anything of his. it’s all utterly joyous.


#5

ah someone put one of his tracks on the DiS summer playlist and I listen to that loads but never ventured further. What’s the go to album?


#6

I think this might genuinely be my favourite physical exertion record :full_moon_with_face:


#7

I would like to get some really cheap or free cardboard boxes in the Oxford area


#8

Though if you wanted vox I’d go for a Pavement album, maybe crooked rain or something, it’d suit this weather


#9

there’s a compilation called ‘who is william onyeabor?’ that has most of his ‘hits’. in terms of albums, i’d say maybe ‘atomic bomb’, ‘tomorrow’ or ‘anything you sow’. they’re all pretty great, though.


#10

often whack this on when I’m walking back from somewhere late. proper good, repetitive walking music


#11

LCD Soundsystem - 45:33


#12

thanks man, I’ll do this in the morning now just need an afternoon record


#13

Wife is gonna watch game of thrones soon. Need something to do for an hour. Any ideas?


#14

go for a run!


#15

Have a wank.


#16

ftfy :wink:


#17

Two beers deep already! Bad idea probably. Might go for a walk though.

For an hour!?

No.


#18

Loads of American hardcore bands think they’re making a very clever and obscure reference by copying the neu logo as evidenced by today’s badge


Just kinda funny because they’re still so massive here/Europe
(yes that badge has been in the wash :frowning: )


#19

there’s this too


#20

Sloy - Plug


Used to run to this album all the time
