A source of free music for derivative works in animations

There's a lot of times when I wanted to start an animation project, and I spent most of my time looking for music for a soundtrack. RIAA-produced music is a no-no-- you or youtube will get sued. Creative Commons licenses which are -nd- "no derivatives" are a no-no-- if you're making it a soundtrack to one of your works. Creative Commons licenses which are -nc- "non-commercial" are also a no-no, because while I'm an amateur, I've got a blog with ads! The remainder for us animators is the realm which is -by- or -by-sa-. It's refreshing to find quality music that is literally being given away for free. I found BrunoXe's work on the music site jamendo.com. Here's a player for one of his albums.
(Okay, and yes, I did Paypal the guy five bucks, you satisfied?)

Hey, did you really paypal me 5 bucks?

Um, yes, through the Jamendo site, by a process that was anonymous (until now). Did you get it?

Your donation doesn't appear here:

Maybe Jamendo stole the money
Should I be worried?

Here's as much information from a paypal screen grab that I'm comfortable sharing with the world:
