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!

Peter and the Wolf
In graveyards and abandoned busses is where you might find Peter and the Wolf, a project involving Red Hunter and Dana Falconberry for the Austin based, Whiskey & Apples label. For all intent and purposes we'll use their monikers, Henry Rutherford Jones and Dana Jean Clementine combine to form lo-fi acoustic hymns mixed with mesmorizing harmonies that can awaken the dead. Their voices blend so well together, seemingly as one sometimes, that you can't help but be taken back by the beauty that is Peter and the Wolf.
I 've always been partial to demos and below are two for you to sample. Also we have two tracks from the limited edition handmade LP, drawn by Red Hunter himself, which is available for purchase. For a "bio" of the band check here.

.: The Fall
From demo tapes
.: People of the Night
.: Strange Eyes

Whiskey and apples has really great stuff on their site. If you have not given a listen to the two comps. they did for their magazine, I highly recommend it, there is some stuff I was already familiar with and some great stuff I had not heard before. I really like the black angels song on the second comp, they are not folk, but they are good. I had to get the ep the song is on. I forgot you had already posted about DTB (in reference to message from last night) I miss Uncommon Folk a lot, so I am glad that you are recognizing music like this.

You should get over to "Tonight Let's Dance" and they have posted a really good comp. put out by soul jazz "the best of black jazz records" Soul Jazz stuff is always great and this is no exception. Have you bought any or much of their stuff?
