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.”

Bird By Snow
We’ve had a slow week here at the P&S (in terms of posts), but fear not, the momentum is picking up steam.
Fletcher Tucker is not only the founder of Gnome Life Records, but since 2002, has been producing work under the Bird By Snow moniker. He creates songs, like sculpture, writing as he records, chiseling away to flesh out his work of art.
He sings songs about a love for the world and the feeling that everything in the world loves him in return. Tucker has recorded three albums: “a red record of cyclical reverence called Antlers And The Sun; a black 7" of rebirth, clean face and clean eyes called Industrial Collapse; and a blue record of sweeping ideals, and hopeful moments called Sky.”
Sky is a vinyl release, full of light through broken glass folk, fractured and put back together in a beautiful illuminating arrangement. Stimulating instrumentation are the waves in which Tucker’s voice sails in and out of broken harbors and sea shanty towns. Sky is what has been on the phones while I’ve been updating this website and two tracks are listed below for your pleasure. Recommended!
