This is a simple script for MPD & MPC users. It allows you to quickly queue and play an album. I name the script "album" and put it in ~/bin (which is included in my $PATH).
#!/bin/bash ## Shortcut to search, add, and play an album (after clearing current playlist). ## Use -a (for "add") to add the album to the playlist without clearing current playlist. if [ $1 = -a ] then shift mpc search album "$*" | mpc add ; mpc play exit fi mpc clear mpc search album "$*" | mpc add ; mpc play
