Controlling Icecast remotely

I have set up an Icecast2 on my server and my new little internet radio station is operational. I simply followed this guide to do it. However it only plays the music randomly from a playlist.

What I would like to do now is be able to remotely, without being SSHed to the server all the time, control the order of the songs that are playing or even choose one of the songs in the playlist myself. I suppose there should be a way to interface with the source of the music that goes to Icecast2, Ices2 in my case, through a web interface and control it from there, but if there is a non-web software to do it, that would be great too.

So far I was suggested Liquidsoap and TuneQueue, but I'm wondering if there are any other simpler solutions.

So if anyone has any experience with that sort of thing, feel free to share.

Thanks
