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!

The Collective and other News

Well I'm finally getting that music video show (The Collective) together and I really have some great videos planned for the first episode. I've been working with Barsuk and Beggars (looking for any and all other record / independent labels to contribute) and some local labels to produce the first show. Locally we will air videos from Farewell, a band out of Greensboro, The Know, from Raleigh, and Jimmy and the Teasers (they do the theme music for Second Cinema). Nationally we will have videos from Nada Surf, The Mountain Goats, Devendra Banhart, Calla, and The National to name a few. We are really excited and hope that we can help expose these artists to the general public in the Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill area. If you guys know any artists, or you are an artist, and would like to contribute to the show, please send me an email.

In other news. I just purchased The Notes and Scratches cd last night and it's great. If you liked the samples that were up here yesterday, then you will love the album. If you purchase online you get the hand drawn cd mailed to you, but you also get immediate access to all songs via mp3 download and a digital booklet. Awesome album! You can purchase Uh OH! here.

Alessio and Francesco from Indie for Dummies , an Italian MP3 Blog, contacted me (their trying to contact every music blog, so no, I'm not that special) in regards to providing them with a Top 10 list of the albums of 2005. Very difficult to narrow to ten, but I did, along with 6 extra albums that had to be mentioned. I look forward to their results and check out their site. Thanks guys.

Well it seems that I have been posting alot lately, but I guess I have the time and trust me there's plenty to post about. I will be doing another Vinyl Upload Series installment either tomorrow or this weekend so check that out. It'll be well worth it.
