This week’s Spotify-powered SolidSmack Radio Playlist knocks you in the pop sockets with head-boppin’ groove tuneage to help propel you through the work week in style. Whether you find yourself inking markers until they’re dry, grinding material through a bandsaw or working that 3D geometry all day, consider these tracks as a tool for your process.

This week we’ll start things off with “Vicious” from the one and only Lou Reed before working our way through a fresh mix of LCD Soundsystem, Toro y Moi, Air, Talking Heads and others before wrapping up with the classic “Ballade de Melody Nelson” from Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin.

Have suggestions? As always, let us know what you listen to, what you want to hear and what tunes get you through the week. Shoot us an email or leave a comment down below!!
