freemusi.cc is an online music player for streaming creative commons music. Its database currently contains 21502 tracks hosted on the servers of the Internet Archive. Every album is selected by hand, rated and tagged song by song before being added here. Example queries can now be found under Help. This news section was last updated on 27 July 2014. Additionally, there is one album recommendation per week over on my blog ojdo.de.

The tagging standard allows for an easier music discovery compared to
music blogs, the Internet Archive itself or Jamendo. If you are after
great rock music, just search for
mood IS 3 AND rating GREATER 3 AND genre IS Rock.
Boolean queries (
NOT), comparison operators (
EQUAL) and nesting with parenthesis are supported.
Query syntax reference
|Matches if value is identical to |
|Matches if value contains |
Text comparisons are case insensitive and compare the whole string, not word by word. If you want to search for multiple strings simultaneously, you must use
|Matches if value is bigger than |
|Matches if value is smaller than |
|Matches if value equals |
|Matches tracks that are found by both expressions.|
|Matches tracks that are found by at least one expression.|
|Matches tracks that are not found by the expression.|
Nesting and grouping expressions with parenthesis is possible, for example:
(<expression1> OR <expression2>) AND NOT <expression3> matches tracks that are found by expression1 or expression2, but at the same time not by expression3.
Optionally, the following sort expression can be appended to any query expression. Supported are ascending or descending by one or more fields.
These are special formats that are recognised by the query parser. However, they may not be part of a composed query.
