This week’s Spotify-powered SolidSmack Radio Playlist brings an entirely new face-smack of great music to help propel you through those laborious, tedious design tasks for the next few days. This week we’re going in the complete opposite direction of last week’s Deadline Destroyer playlist with something to help get those gears cranking in the early hours of the day. We’ll start with some Sébastien Tellier and work our way through some Harry Belafonte, Belle and Sebastian, PJ Harvey, and The Shins before wrapping up with Feist.


Have any suggestions for next week’s playlist? How about a playlist specific to a design task? Let us know in the comments!
