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.”

Biirdie is kind of a guilty pleasure, although I'm not too guilty about liking their debut, Morning Kills The Dark. I say that, because I've seemed to follow lead singer Jared Flamm no matter where he goes (music wise that is) He was the lead singer of my favorite college band Noah's Red Tattoo and then helped Laura Minor get off the ground and now his latest incarnation, Biirdie. I say his, but it's equal parts Kala Savage, and Richard Gowen. With Jared's uniquie vocals and Kala's beautiful voice you really can't go wrong when wanting that occasional pop music treat. MKTD is truely a great debut and Splendid said, "If you love pop songcraft -- and you know you do -- there's simply no reason why you shouldn't own this record."

I wrote about the album a few month's ago, but two new tracks became available so check out the sample from MKTD, the two new tracks and two tracks from Noah's Red Tattoo.

Check out Biirdie's website, my space, and you should be able to purchase MKTD just about anywhere including their website.

.: You've Got Darkness (MKTD)
.: Estelle (new track)
.: We Can't Work It Out (new track)

.: Day My Sister (NRT - Record Low Turnout)
.: Rosencrantz is Dead (NRT- Soapbox Days)
