What about Quod Libet?  It's written in Python, it has tons of plugins
included, and when you change the default view, it looks very, very similar
to rhythmbox.

Note, I'm not making any claims as to lightness of the application (it uses
a gstreamer back end, I think), but someone could check that out if they
think it might make a good option.  I'm using it on Xubuntu Intrepid, and I
really like it - so it's just one person's opinion on things.  Exaile might
be a good option, too.
