Sources of Creative Commons Music

Hey folks -

I'm working on a piece of software that I'll need some music to redistribute with it to demo. I'd prefer to use actual music tracks rather than podcasts or just 'noise from Garageband' tracks. Music licensed under the creative commons would be ideal for my use.

What are some good sources of music under the creative commons license? Preferably somewhere that I can pull a dozen or so tracks with decent sound quality, a mix of genres is preferred.

The Internet Music Archive ( has a lot of stuff. They also have a huge collection of live recordings, many of them from big-name bands, and all of the bands have given their blessings to redistrobution.

Also, under U.S. copyright law, you can use up to 20 seconds of any song and it's considered fair use.
