I want a music player app that

  1. has material design
  2. is lightweight, so that it takes up almost no memory when running


  1. notification of the playing song, which appears at the top position in the notification drawer

I am running android 4.2 jellybean

I won't mind if it doesn't have lots of features, only a music player with a equalizer (optional).
