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!

8088 Records + 307 Knox
q: what is this 8088 collective thing?
a: we are currently working on a way to allow independent artists a way to promote themselves and sell their records as well as give indie records stores and venues a way to contact artists through our site. this is a massive undertaking that involves some extensive programming so don't expect it to be done anytime soon. however, we want to be able to provide resources to all the wonderful people that we have come across in the underground music world as much as possible, and the collective is one way that we are going about it.
A great article in the Independent all about the "collective". Visit them online at 8088Records.com
On a similar note, you might want to also check out Durham's 307 Knox Records, where they and the artists work together in putting the music out, allowing the artist to have much more control over what their product look, listens and feels like. Check them out online at 307knoxrecords.com
307 Knox will be releasing Midtown Dickens' cd on May 12th at 305 South, and I hope to have a review of the disc as soon as it's in my hands.
