Two things here...
1) A player was working on some music for the game, but I'm not sure if he mothballed it - http://soundcloud.com/xinferis
- kinda not holding my breath at this point, but perhaps he'll resurface and surprise me.
2) I'm kind of inspired by Kingdom of Loathing's radio station feature, as well as Day9's Starcraft2 commentaries where (if you watch live) he plays some pretty kickin' music during the breaks... I actually have a lot of experience working with streaming music, as I was one of the engineers working on a certain major corporation's music streaming application that was recently released to the AppStore (unfortunately it seems as though it was released too soon as it didn't get rave reviews due to some pretty nasty bugs, but I digress). There's a lot of legalities around all of this that I don't honestly fully grok yet, but I do think it would be cool to at least give the server(s) a lot of control over what plays in the game at any given time (obviously wouldn't want it to be streaming constantly, but having it able to command the client to play/download new tracks is intriguing to me). The more I think about it, the more I think I don't want generic RPG music, but something different and fun and that's constantly evolving, introducing people to new and different types of music, or doing interviews with (in)famous in game players... I dunno.
3) Sound effects would be nice too. I'm sure I'll integrate them in the future.
