I dislike the Spotify client for OS X. I'm looking for a CLI client. Any recommendation?

Have you tried Despotify, mentioned on the service's Wikipedia page? If so, what's wrong with it and the other clients based on it? If not, why not? – Daniel Beck Jan 28 '12 at 4:31
@DanielBeck I couldn't install it via homebrew. – Tuan Anh Tran Jan 31 '12 at 1:33

Despotify can be installed on OSX, I personally installed it with homebrew with the command

brew install --HEAD Despotify 

and subsequently ran despotify, you will be show how to use the program from there on in.

You should never need sudo for homebrew. – slhck Jun 7 '12 at 9:05
