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.”

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

Great Lake Swimmers
Somewhere floating between the ghost of Nick Drake and the souls of Will Oldham and Neil Young is Tony Dekker, the lead singer of the Great Lake Swimmers. With the release of their second album, Bodies and Minds, the GLS continue what they starter with their alt-country sense, gentle vocals, and delicate instrumentation. Bodies and Minds was recorded in a lakeside church in rural southern Ontario and for some reason I would expect nothing less. GLS have been on rotation here on this cold rainy afternoon, so I thought I would give you a taste of what we're listening too. Enjoy.
