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 pulling out some of our favorite tunes to start the day off on the right foot to. We’ll start with First Aid Kit and move through some Beach House, Dirty Projectors, Radiohead, Kurt Vile and others before wrapping up with a Bob Dylan classic. So bundle up out there kids (it’s gettin’ chilly out!) and load this into your earbuds or desktop speakers.


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