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.”

The Somnambulants

The Somnambulants are:
Joseph White: Bass, vocals, synths, programming
Channing Sargent: Synth, vocals

"Contrary to their title, The Somnambulants are anything but sleepy. Their music is best described as electro-pop, though for them, the secret formula is to avoid writing “electronic music,” and to write instead great songs that just happen to use electronic instruments." website

The Somnambulants are a two piece boy/girl band making wonderful "noise" with electronic instruments. You can tell they are influenced by indie pop, but don't let that get you down, because mixing this influence with the electronics, makes for great fun. Soft, and sweet at moments, dark and edgy at others...Check them out today and make sure to check out the qtv below, beautiful video!

I found these guys through the Clairaudience Collective, which turns out, is a collective started by The Somnambualnts.

"Clairaudience is based in Brooklyn, NYC. We are a group of musicians and artists who have banded together to share resources, talents, and contacts. We all share common goals and are pursuing similar dreams. The best way for us to succeed is to combine energies into the Clairaudience Collective. Our belief: The more we help each other, the more we help ourselves." clairaudience

Check out both the Collective's site and The Somnambulant's site. You can purchase their music (strongly recomend) here.
