which web hosts do you folks recommend? I'm looking for a deal with a good amount of storage and monthly bandwidth as i'll be running a record label from it and hosting a lot of mp3 and flac files. godaddy seemed like a good deal but I've read a lot of bad things about them after some google searching.

One of a my clients runs a multimedia site, videos, mp3s, flash. They are hosted with www.cleverdot.com

Just be sure to buy your domain separate from hosting. Its always good to have them at different places just in case they try to keep your domain hostage for some reason though they likely won't. Their support is pretty good. Send an email, response within 10 minutes.

I wouldn't go with Godaddy for web hosting. They compete on being the cheapest, which usually means compromising on everything else. I assume you're looking for virtual hosting, not dedicated. I've had positive experiences with the below virtual hosts:

http://www.liquidweb.com
http://www.f5hosting.com
http://www.site5.com

Dreamhost should still be $22 for a year of hosting.
