Musopress Discography creates a Discography Custom Post Type to display and organize your albums on your site.
If you use Bandcamp, it lets you import your music through the click of a button. This way you can use Bandcamp’s awesom features and integrate them effortlessly with your site. Any changes you make can be easily updated by simply re-importing the album(s) in question.
An optional Artist taxonomy is included, useful for labels and artists with many bands/projects.
There’s also a widget to display your latest releases.
You can install it through the admin interface or manually:
