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!

First off let me say, January has been a bear of a month between, well, life in general. A month where there is so much to do, that can be done, opportunities, responsibilities, and it seems my hands were in everything near the end of last year that I eventually I just pulled them all back to reassess. For what it's worth, I thought I'd write that...on to Rosie Thomas
That should be all I have to write about Rosie Thomas' release, These Friends of Mine. A total collaboration between Thomas, Sufjan Stevens, and Denison Witmer, as well as many featured guests. Many people might argue with me on this (I remember you guys dissing my thoughts on Isobel Campbell's cd) but I thought this cd not only produced solid singles, like the one below, but as an album, could be listened to from start to finish without a missed beat.
Amazing and available right now for advanced download through emusic or itunes (retail March 07) and this has been on rotation today. Below is a track with links to acquire.
