The Perm & The Skullet is a non-profit music blog devoted to bringing you music of all kinds.

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.”

WXYC: Webcasting 10th Anniversary cd

I'm new here (NC), well it's been about 5 years now, but one thing that I have found here in North Carolina is good music. Whether its radio like WKNC or WXYC or if it's venues like The Cat's Cradle and Local 506, the Triangle provides oppourtunities for musicians/fans to explore all different types of music. My friend and former DJ, Todd (that's twice now) turned me onto WXYC and with their webcast (first station in the country by the way), I have another option for good music pumping through my speakers everyday. To celebrate their 10th Anniversary of webcasting they released, what else, but a cd of some of the music that has graced the station's airwaves. The whole thing is available for download by mp3 or by torrent. I'll post a few tracks here, but check out their site to get the whole album and help support an independent college radio station.
