A few weeks ago we told you guys about the custom CyanogenMod 9 Music app coming soon to the Android Market that adds loads of tweaks and new features to the stock Android 4.0 Google Music app. Well, even though it’s not officially available from the Android Market, you can still try it out for yourself via the developer’s blog for the app.

In it’s current form, the CM9 Music app will only work on devices running on Android 4.0 and will not stream music from your Google Music account (no doubt a make or break for most). The app’s developer, Andrew Neal, did mention that the app will arriving in the Android Market shortly and although he hopes to backport CM9 Music “as much as possible” — it will come with a cost. Older versions of Android will lose some features like notification and lockscreen controls. I, for one, can’t wait to give it a whirl on my Gingerbread running Samsung Epic 4G Touch once available.

Still, with its customizable theme engine, gestures and notification controls, the CyanogenMod 9 Music app is a great option for those that like to jam out to their favorite music stored their SD card. Hit up the source link for the download.
