I'm looking for native music clients for Linux which support integration with Google Play Music. Currently, I'm using the open-source Electron app GPMDP, which is nice, but Electron apps are fairly heavy. This particular player spawns dozens of child processes when it runs, which persist (but don't multiply over time) until I quit the player; this ends up costing me a lot of RAM.
I'm indifferent about whether alternatives are GUI, or whether they have an
ncurses CLI, or if they're even more barebones; as long as it can integrate with Google Play Music and it supports media keys under GNOME (either natively or with minor tweaks), it's a good-enough player.
