There are many options - gmusicbrowser is the default and it works
fairly well if you don't mind the library setup.  I use mplayer.
There was another one in 12.04, Parole, I think, but I almost always
use mplayer after ripping (usually via k3b IIRC) or downloading
(youtube-dl) and converting (avconv) the music.

VLC works for me. mplayer can do this also, it's just a little trickier.
