Probably the simplest and fastest audio player for Linux.

Pogo plays your music. Nothing else. It is both fast and easy-to-use. The clear interface uses the screen real-estate very efficiently. Other features include: Fast search on the harddrive and in the playlist, smart album grouping, cover display, desktop notifications and no music library.
Pogo is a fork of Decibel Audio Player and supports most common audio formats. It is written in Python and uses GTK+ and gstreamer.


Ubuntu/Mint: Add pogo PPA for automatic updates:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pogo-dev/daily && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install pogo
