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.”

Roman Candle Ticket Giveaway

Do you live in the Triangle/NC area? Do you want to see the up and coming Roman Candle? Well your in luck. We're giving away FREE passes (winner +1) to see Roman Candle, La Rocca, and The Changes performming live at the Cat's Cradle, Wednesday November 8th.

All you need to do to win these passes is send me an email or post a comment, with your email address, letting me know why you want to go to the show and I'll pick a winner by Sunday evening. That gives you 5 days, and I'll email the winner with all the necessary info.

Recently signed to V2 and getting glowing reviews for their debut release, The Wee Hours Revue, this NC band is making good. A Pitchfork rating of 7.6, an Indy review stating, " Roman Candle is one of the best, most complete American rock bands to surface in a decade" and The Boston Globe stating, "Like the Jayhawks' Smile or Summerteeth - era Wilco, Roman Candle's arresting debut is a smart-bomb stunner..."

You can hear snippets from The Wee Hours Revue on their website, but why not sample a full track below.
