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 curated a list of some of Thom Yorke’s current favorites for when he’s not busy making his own music. We’ll start with some some upbeat sounds from Alex Cortex and work our way through some Actress, Aoki Takamasa, Tapes, and others before wrapping up with one of the latest tracks from The Knife.


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