Album Tells The Story of River Trout

One of our favorite new uploads comes to us from the French band Salmo. They are a post-punk experimental trio composing narrative music inspired by nature or natural phenomenons.

Their self-titled album is entirely devoted to the life of a river trout, from birth to death. The tracks flow with forward momentum, and capture something dark, cool, and dynamic. They are offering this release using the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 license, which makes this river trout album free to spawn many other unique creations (animations, video games, remixes), as long as they give attribution. More Info.

Good #CCmusic to Wish Jesus a Happy Birthday: @adiffuser's 'En attendant Noël'

Many of the songs we use to celebrate Jesus' birthday have been scooped up by copyright amassers (kinda like what happened to "Happy Birthday To You," hey). Fortunately, the holidaze are an endless well of creativity, and we have been blessed with some wonderful public domain and Creative Commons music. The holiday music featured on FMA encompasses everything from The 8Bits of Christmas to Antique Cylinders.

One recent addition is En attendant Noël..., a compilation from The French netaudio resource (profiled here) has been adding a daily winter holiday song to their compilation and now that the 25th is here we are pleased to share this gift with you! Some are old favorites 'round these parts, many are new favorites, and if they find their way into your holiday plans, you'll find links + licenses below.

Sup. This group needs more action. Listen:

Soul with BITE
Tight but JAZZY
SNazzy and SParkly,
With a frosting of ARTSY.

Pop, Rock, Death Metal Psy

All are pieces of my PIE.

But not too lame,
Lest words bring shame
Upon the plane that
Brings refrain
To name
The Game

I dunno what I'm on about,
But you can dig it.

Hi there,
I have a question about using a piece of music in a monetized youtube video. The FAQ says to contact the "Curator", so here I am!
I'd like to use Christmas Wish No. 3571 by Wiredrawn. For a DIY Christmas ornament video. According to the Creative Commons license provided it seems to be fine, but YouTube often wants a written confirmation that it is okay to use it commercially.
Could you email me?

Hi I would like to use Chan Wai Fat - Dream (instrumental) as an addition on the end of my children's book. This is optional, as i will offer a CD with that song dubbed over with a lullaby. I may put a cd pocket on the back cover with it. Anyway, Im wondering, is that a violation of 'commercial' under the license? It seems like it is. If so, Could i contact respective artists to make arrangements outside of FMA?
