Comfort Stand Recordings was a real pioneer in the whole "legally giving away music for free" thing on the Internet. They were an active netlabel from 2003 - 2006 - Radiohead's In Rainbows came out in 2007. Though they're no longer offering new releases, they've maintained their website and their archives. Lots of releases to choose from, plus their "About" page is an interesting sort-of time capsule from the last decade. Comfort Stand Recordings contributes to the FMA - you can find their curator page here.
One of their more popular releases is Wakka Chikka Wakka Chikka: Porn Music for the Masses. It's just what it sounds like - cheesy, soft-focus, poolboy seducing, disco-inflected, recreational drug use cuts with a wide range of styles and contributors, including a guest appearance by R. Stevie Moore.
