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!

Beirut: Lon Gisland EP
I have to admit that I wasn't head over heels for Beirut's debut, Gulag Orkestar, and in turn, I didn't mention it here, and I'm fine with that. On the other hand there were a few outstanding tracks on the lp, which made me wonder why not an extended ep or something. Well I just downloaded Beirut's Lon Gisland EP from emusic over the holidays and I was blown away. Elephant Gun and the re-tooled Scenic World (Version) are far superior to anything on the lp and if I did some Best of 2006 singles, then this might have just creeped in. Below is Elephant Gun, one of my favorite tracks from Gulag Orkestar, and a link to download...Do I know you or what.
