Default Anybody figured out why Google Play Music keeps giving random errors on KitKat?

ever since i upgraded to stock kitkat (not via ota, and i have root) my google play music has been giving me unable to play this song errors. i'm down to do a logcat if someone smarter than me is down to read it and try to find a solution. i've noticed it when i'm on wifi and mobile data, while i'm using gps and while i'm not, with personal library songs as well as all-access tracks, and i'm fairly certain it hasn't mattered whether the tracks were on-device or streaming.

has anybody who took the stock kitkat OTA without any root or modifications had this same issue?

has anybody had zero GPM errors since updating to kitkat?

I'm gonna chime in and say I've been having issues too. I'm completely stock. But Play Music usually randomly just stops midsong with an unable to play song error. Haven't been able to figure out what's causing it.
