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 to kick up the tempo a few notches to get that blood pumping first thing in the morning. We’ll start off with Formaldehyde from Editors and work our way through some Wampire, Tame Impala, Beck, MGMT, and other blood-curdling, brain-shocking sounds before wrapping up with Malmo by STRFKR.


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