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.”

Kindermusik: Improvised Music by Babies
Now normally I don’t post just clips of songs. There’s something about being able to provide you with a track that seems only fair, but below are three clips from the 2005 release Kindermusik: Improvised Music by Babies out on the Amorfon label. The tracks on the cd are live recordings of babies' performances, with no editing involved. This project was recorded with children all under 18 months old between 2003-05. Each baby played different instruments, objects, and toys and its eerie how good some of this sounds. Gone are the restrictions put on music by our conscious minds as adults, and what you hear is pure music as it flows from a child.
I really liked the idea and wanted to share it here with you guys. So below are three sound clips in mp3 format. They are not the full length tracks, but it allows you to get a good idea of where the cd is going. There is also a link for purchase if you are so inclined.
