Shutterstock, one of the higher profile contenders in stock photos and video, has added music to their offerings with the help of Rumblefish. However they'll also be taking direct submissions of music for licensing. Users can browse by mood, genre or tempo and two licenses are available with flat-rate pricing. Overall it looks like a well-thought-out service for those seeking music.
