Spotify for Android Redesign

I know I'm too late to enter +Taylor Ling 's Android UI/UX challenge, but I was too far along to not finish this up :) As such, it doesn't fully comply with the contest rules.

Spotify (for me) is one of those apps that has a Holo design, but isn't really up to date or beautiful at all. In light of the new iOS and desktop design, i tried to make an Android design that both used the Holo design guidelines but still had Spotify's own identity.

I also tried experimenting with the use of colour highlights in certain views - I know Pocket Casts does this quite well, and hopefully I have done this in a good enough way :) 

Something that makes an Android app look really modern and clean is the use of transparent or highlighted navigation and status bars, so I used that as well.

I don't do this a whole lot, so I would love to get some feedback on this - what I could improve and learn for next time. Thanks!

I used icons from The Noun Project and Icons8, as well as the standard Android Holo stencils and another I found on the internet.

Shamelessly borrowed from my pal +Andy Marlette, who really needs to share his work here.

Amazon the corporate entity doesn't actually produce a guide for dealing drugs, but its purchase-recommendation algorithm sure seems to have done just that.

I don't use the camera on my nexus 7 much, but does anyone else find the front facing camera is like impossibly slow? #android

Feminism in Canada everyone. So tolerant. So allowing. Totally for equality. Absolutely disgraceful. Weren't you fighting for equality at one point?
