Rdio

New design for Rdio. Brilliant stuff. I really like the layout and how it uses the static images in the background and an almost parallax effect as you scroll down the page.

The little interaction ‘device’ in the top right corner that lest you sort through the different things Rdio does is also brilliant.

It changes its configuration based on screen width as well.

The slide out nav on the left is a nice change in how it fades out the other content on the page. Almost like a complete overlay but not quite since you can still see the content portion of the website – thus letting you just click to get back into it.
