id3fs provides a browsable filesystem of your music files, organised into sub-directories by id3 tags (or flac/ogg comments).

id3fs allows you to construct boolean queries from a tag folksonomy such as:

goth/AND/decade/1980s/
postrock/AND/NOT/rating/terrible/
thrash/OR/rapmetal/AND/NOT/wears-a-red-hat/
prog/AND/decade/1970s/OR/psychedelia/AND/decade/1960s/
location/sweden/AND/screamo/AND/postrock/

Multiple tags can be stored in the genre tag, separated by commas.
