Spotify Applescripts – Updated

New Version Here
picture-2As with all good things there comes a time when a little update and a refresh is needed. Sometime ago a released several little Applescript helpers that let you control spotify through Quicksilver triggers. However they had a little tendency to make spotify the front and therefore active app when you used them. The new and improved scripts will return you back to the app you where using before the script was triggered, fun eh!
