Looks like it to me. Something like this URL
Which will get you a list of albums tagged electronica. Retrieving more
than "plain" would get you all the albums ogg files, artwork, or other

Perhaps if you already had the downloading of the ogg files to a
specified directory say in a separate little python program. You could
just add that directory to Rhythmbox since I believe it does an imported
directory watch for file changes? Then I guess you'd just need to have
an auto-playlist that looks in that path for files. A Rube Goldberg
contraption of music craziness that just might work...

It looks like they have an API to get Album covers
From their page it looks all requests are handled by building a URL
with the correct parameters.
A sample request : Get all the tracks from the album with ID 33 :
The addresses are built this way :
