    Songbird gone :( Any suggested replacement?

    I just upgraded/installed Ubuntu 13.04 AMDx64 and Songbird is not available via synpatic / apt-get. I really liked Songbird with its feathers (skins/themes). Anything come close to Songbird that I could install? I do have Amarok and Rhythmbox but I don't really like their GUI interface, seems cluttered with non-track stuff compared to Songbird, and I like a music player with skins.

    Looking for songbird (which I do not use) I stumbled upon this fork : http://getnightingale.com/

    | Reinstalling Ubuntu ? Please check this bug first ! |
    | Using a ppa ? Please install ppa-purge from universe, you may need it should you want to revert packages back |

    I installed and tried nightingale but it kept crashing, sometimes immediately sometimes after ten seconds. Googled and see that is common. Oh well.

    Audacious and xmms can be skinned, as well as vlc (which most people think of as just a video player).

    I use Audacious (but I use the standard gtk interface because I'm boring like that) and I also like Clementine.
