Blurred Overlay Concept for Time-Indicator/Scrubber

I know there's already an abundance of music player widgets around here. But I had this idea a couple nights ago to use a blurred overlay as the time-indicator/scrubber so that's what I'm trying to highlight here. Hence, why the rest of the UI is so *meh*. What do you guys think?

Also, any Brand New fans around?
