Sideshow is a minimalist jacket for Simplify that showcases cover art, designed for large secondary displays such as an LCD TV.

Sideshow currently supports a black colour scheme and displays artwork at 800px. You can click anywhere within the jacket bounds to play/pause.

Requires Simplify 2.7+



Sideshow is a remix of the excellent Sidecar jacket by Brett Terpstra. This would not have been possible without Brett’s hard work.
