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.

“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.”

Soundtrack Enthusiast series
I was searching around the web this weekend and stumbled upon a truely great music blog entitled An Aquarium Drunkard. He had great mentions like BPB, Sigur Ros, Matt Pond PA, and some classic stuff like B-52's via 1979 and a review of Born to Run's latest reincarnation, but what really grabbed my attention, and the main reason I'm mentioning it here, is a new series he seems to be putting out devoted to Soundtracks.
He has only compiled two so far, but did he come out swinging. Sountrack Enthusiast 1 is devoted to the music of Wes Anderson, with greats like, 2000 Man (Rolling Stones) from Bottle Rocket, Nothing In This World Can Stop Me Worrin' (The Kinks) from Rushmore, Judy Is A Punk (The Ramones) from The Royal Tennebaums, and Starman (Seu Jorge) from The Life Aquatic.
Soundtrack Enthusiast 2 is devoted to the work of one of my favorite directors, David Lynch. He looks at In Dreams (Candy Colored Clown) (Roy Orbision) from Blue Velvet, Fire Walk With Me (Angelo Badalamenti) from Twin Peaks, This Magic Moment (Lou Reed) from Lost Highway, and Crying (Llorando) from Mullholland Drive.
I hope he continues the series, because I can't wait to see what's next. Dont' just take my word for it, check out An Aquariam Drunkard .
