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.”

I promise to listen to everything, but due to the large amount of material I receive, I can not guarantee review. Thanks!

A happy holiday to you all. I feel about 5 pounds heavier full of turkey and what not and took a small break to enjoy the family. Well the house is somewhat quiet and the headphones go on once again.

Probably the best part of the weekend is that a friend of mine really got me hooked on CocoRosie. I should have been in tune with these beautiful ladies earlier, but some how they managed to go under my radar. Well I'm catching up for lost times with a sample from both of their releases in La Maison de Mon Rêve (2004) and Noah's Ark (2005) below. Their most recent release, Noah's Ark might posibly be that final tenth album in my Top Ten of 2005. Unbelievably enchanting vocals and their processing of music is absolutely amazing. Angelic in a heaven that I would like to know. Check out their site with Touch and Go for info on the band, tracks to sample, and even a video for Noah's Ark.

(mp3) Noah's Ark
(mp3) Beautiful Boyz (w/ guest vocal by Antony)

(mp3) By Your Side
(mp3) Good Friday

You can purchase the albums through Insound, Amazon, or download them from iTunes or emusic. These are a must in any record collection and I am glad I finally got them into mine.
