The Perm & The Skullet is a non-profit music blog devoted to bringing you music of all kinds.

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.”

Gnomonsong's been busy

I've been talking about this loose amoeba of a collective for near a year and they have finally picked up an amazing amount of steam this Spring. P&S favorites, Papercuts and Danielle Stech-Homsy (Rio en Medio) will both be releasing albums on the Gnomonsong label, as well as the much awaited sophomore release by Jana Hunter.

Rio en Medio
's album, The Bride of Dynamite, is out tomorrow, February 13th. Below are a few tracks from her previous effort to get you in the mood. On this album she is accompanied by Andy Cabic, CocoRosie's Sierra Casady, and Tim Fite. This has been near the top of my list of upcoming releases.

.: Everyone Is Someone's
.: Tiger Ear
.: Heaven Is High

Gnomonsong will also be releasing Papercuts' Can't Go Back, his second release, on March 6th. His debut, Mockingbird was amazing and I expect nothing less here. Make sure to catch him live at The Cat's Cradle March 3rd alongside Grizzly Bear. It should be a fantastic show! Below is a track from this upcoming release as well.

.: John Brown

Things have been off the wall in NC this year, more to come... I assure you.
