The Perm & The Skullet is a non-profit music blog devoted to bringing you music of all kinds.

Although we prefer that rustic, acoustic, unusual, whiskey soaked sound, we do like music of all styles and genres. If you have something you think we should listen to, by all mean, let us know.

All Links and MP3s are for sampling, evaluation, and introduction purposes only and are intended to provide exposure to said artist / film / site etc... If you like it, please go buy it.

Online, we recommend Insound, emusic or directly from the artist or their label. Locally, we recommend Schoolkids Records or Bull City Records.

Most Mp3 samples are only available for a limited time, usually a week or two. If there is something you missed, and it is currently unavailable or out of print, please let us know and we can see what we can do.

MP3s, Links, and Images can easily be taken down, so if you are the owner or their representation, and would like said link or file removed, just let us know and we'€™ll be happy to do so. You can E-mail me directly here for any questions or concerns or submissions.

Quote by:
Will Oldham

“As soon as it becomes your profession to critique a book, or movie, or record then, not only do you lose your passion for it, but it loses validity for whoever you’re trying to turn it onto because they’re going to be approaching it from a consumer’s point of view, not from a professional writer’s point of view.”

Wake Up. Report.

I hear similarities to alot of bands here (Braid for instance), but the nice thing about this is, at least they took the best parts and transformed them into their own. Wake Up. Report. is a four piece band from Belleville, Illinois and have released their debut record, Record or Record. They are on the right path to success and already I can't stop listening to The No Vote. Currently you can only get the album at shows, but they are working on a "buy online" section to their website. *Update You can now get the cd at their website

Line up:
Gerald Gregory Bach Jr.- drums
Daniel Huffman- bass
Steven James Breidenbach- electric guitars
Bill Hudgins- electric guitars, Rhodes piano, and lead vocals.

Check out the band's official site for more info and upcoming shows.
