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.”

Sibylle Baier: Colour Green
In the darkness of Germany, while her family lay fast asleep, Sibylle Baier would record on her reel-to-reel in the secrets of her room. And between 1970-1973 she had recorded the songs that would be released on this year's Colour Green.
Gorgeous glimpses into the real world of Baier's life, the listener establishes, rather quickly, a personal connection and sense of comfort. Coos of lullabies that teeter the line of felicity and sorrow. An intimate revealing as you look through someone else's eyes, as you look through her eyes, to unlock a world that is never too far away. Gently plucked and strummed guitar provides the listener just enough wind to float away on the voice of Baier and into your heart.
Colour Green is out on Orange Twin Records and is another must own of 2007. Below is a track and links to purchase and/or download.
