This is orthagonal to your original question, but as a suggestion for
music players and xmonad, I use mpd and have key bindings that control
it through mpc. I use one key for pause and another for volume
control. Finally I have included pertinent parts of the mpc output in
my xmobar. It's all pretty simple and make a very nice simple music
