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!

I owe this find to Chris at gvb, but felt it deserved a post here since it kind of fits my regular postings. The Finches are Carolyn Pennypacker Riggs and Aaron Morgan, who both contribute in the singing and guitar work that are The Finches. They released their first EP, Six Songs, in the Summer of 2005 and I'm kicking myself for not knowing about this group earlier. If Joanna Newsom sang softer and less on the edge, this would kinda describe Riggs' beautiful voice. The songs are simple enough and with Riggs' voice intertwining with the acoustic guitar, it makes for a perfect aural experience. Below are two tracks from their EP and one live track from late '05.
.: The Road
.: Daniel's Song
.: The Leviathan Song (live 10/23/05)

Just put the Finches/Roads on a mix CD. Thanks for the heads-up. Also, I didn't realize you'd just posted on Unbunny. Good minds think alike, but I didn't mean to step on your post.
