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.”

Half-Handed Cloud

Half-Handed Cloud is the brain child of John Ringhofer. With his array of multi instrument/media productions, HHC takes us on a journey, his journey. Just check out his website as it opens with animated kangaroos, the virgin Mary and a squirrel. He has released three full length albums and his fourth, Halos & Lassos, is set to be released on Asthmatic Kitty in March of 2006. What struck me to write this post was the 10/05 release of the 5 track, 7" EP What's the Remedy. Recorded in a friend's basement years ago (2002) with, none other than AK's poster boy, Sufjan Stevens, the tracks combine songs of medicine, tablets, letters and graves. Check out one of the cuts below.

.: I Got A Letter

Take a listen to a few more tracks from prior releases

.: Animals are Cut in Two (from Thy is a Word & Feet Need Lamps)
.: We're Very Greatly Loved (from We Haven't Just Been Told, We have been Loved)
.: Can't Even Breath (from Learning About Your Scale)
.: The Body Binds Us (from Learning About Your Scale)

All albums can be purchased through AK or Insound or downloaded through emusic.
