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.”

Floation Toy Warning
Flotation Toy Warning are ..."rooted in creating a truly postmodern sound. Their ambitious debut album, Bluffer's Guide to the Flight Deck, cements this London five-piece as modern masters of their own brand of baroque, experimental pop." bio from Misra
They truely do expand the horizon in experimental pop and it does draw a slight comparision to that of Jens Lekman/mixed with the Flaming Lips and maybe that's why I am getting into them and wanted to pass along these guys to you. An orchstra of beautiful sounds, dream-like harmonies, electronic beats and sound samples, mixed with the amazing vocals of Donald Drusky and co. provides the listener a glimpse into a sonic landscape of epic proportions. Check out their website and the two tracks below.
Popstar Reaching Oblivion
