Yelawolf - Trunk Muzik

Yelawolf - Trunk Muzik
1. Trunk Muzik
2. Stage Lights (Remix)
3. Good To Go feat. Bun B
4. Pop The Trunk
5. Box Chevy PT. 3 feat. Rittz
6. F.U.
7. Lick The Cat feat. Diamond
8. Speak Her Sex feat. Nikkiya
9. I Wish feat. Raekwon
10. In This Club
11. Love Is Not Enough
12. Mixin Up The Medicine (Remix) feat. Juelz Santana

First off, I have never done a review for this type of music, so this is a BYED first.

Coming out of Alabama, the rapper Yelawolf shows his lyrical talent and versatility. Mixed with heavy bass, insane lyrical skills, and catchy beats, this c.d. is a must for anyone who wants their trunk to rattle. I heard about this artist over on the Steve Meade Designs website (Link) when I was looking for some music with really low bass. After one listen to this c.d., I was very impressed. I play this nearly every time I get in my car. The bass is insane, nearly shaking my mirrors off. His raps are also insane, and also very creative. I think Yelawolf is one of the fastest spitting rappers in todays world. If you want to bump some loud music that is actually good, this is a must.

Suggested Songs: Trunk Muzik, Lick the Cat, and Mixin Up The Medicine

Plug In Stereo - The Art Feeds EP

The Art Feeds EP
1. It Seems Like
2. I've Been Thinking
3. But I Can't

Not too long ago, I found Plug In Stereo. Instantly I went and downloaded it instantly from iTunes. His music is defiantly something you can relate to. It started out just being all him, but this EP adds touches to his songs, giving them a whole new feel. Some of the songs have drums and other instruments added. This EP gives me high hopes for the next few releases of his. His release Nothing to Something was his first song into this new sound. What I liked about this EP is that he released it for free [or if you want to, donate]. You can get it from the Plug In Stereo Bandcamp website at
If you like that, then go get his other stuff off of iTunes.

Suggested Songs: All.

It Is A Sad Day...

I started this blog as something to do in my free time to show my love of music and to help share it with other people. I did it for you all. But now the man has cracked down. Apparently, my BYED Mixtape #2 got reported for 'Copywrite Infringement.' So I got a nice e-mail from Blogger explaining what would go down. It was nothing big, but basically, I had to take down the post. No big deal. But it got me thinking. I could understand if it were a full album, but it is a mixtape. For promotional purposes only. What the hell?

But whatever, It's just been a rough day all in all, and getting this was not a great thing for me. I will trek on, I will keep on reviewing music, and posting links to as many free content as I can. I apologize for my inactivity. Senior year has been busy. Anyways, I hate to say this, but thanks to the person who reported it, I will no longer be posting BYED Mixtapes.

The Royal Chains - Bear Island EP

The Royal Chains - Bear Island EP
1. Summerstills
2. Lucy Takes The Dare
3. Wolf
4. Repeater
5. Bear Island

I recently got an e-mail from this band, asking me to do a review. I was utterly amazed at the quality of music from this band. Their sound is truly something that you can listen to for hours on end. This EP shows the different sounds, from some of the songs being slower, to some being upbeat. The thing that I liked most about this EP, is that every song made me want to listen to more. There is no bad song on this EP. They capture the sound of older music, while blending in some features of new music. A very catchy and unique vocal style, featuring one singer, who is also their drummer. If you want to know how hard that is, go try it in rock band. It is a crazy hard feat, and I send my heart out to Adam. I strongly suggest you listen to this EP, buy the EP, or go see the band live. Anything to support this band. They will be playing at SXSW this month as mentioned in my previous post.

Suggested Songs: Lucy Takes The Dare, Repeater and Bear Island

Monday Spotlight: Secret Secret Dino Club

This week is Secret Secret Dino Club.

Secret Secret Dino Club is a truly unique artist/band. From the release Up To No Good and Super Fun Party Songs! to Doin' My Own Thing, And Doin' It So Well, you can tell the diversity in Jayce's musical talent. The older releases of Secret Secret Dino Club were more Raps over beats, when the newer releases have a popish sound. The newer releases feature the guitar, when the older stuff was just beats and riffs. Don't get me wrong, All Secret Secret Dino Club is good, but in different ways. I strongly suggest his music to anyone.

Secret Secret Dino Club is current on tour and will be on stage at SXSW in Texas. Also, Mike Hindirt (the bassist of The Bravery) has a new record company, named Merrifield Records, and his label will have their own showcase on March 20th from 4pm-10pm at The Tiniest Bar In Texas. This showcase will star bands like The Royal Chains, Thee Lexington Arrows, and other bands from the new label. Do not miss your chance to see any of these bands. For more information on SXSW head over to

Monday Spotlight: Romance On A Rocketship

This week is Romance On A Rocketship.

I have been a big fan of Romance On A Rocketship for the longest time. Ever since I heard Kasey Smith's song Skin & Bones. If you think the name Kasey Smith sounds familiar, you might know him from Agraceful [which he is no longer in]. His music has a simple, yet eloquent tone. All of his music is catchy and has Smith's unique voice. While only having 9 songs so far released on iTunes, Smith has made a name for himself, and has nearly flawless track reviews on iTunes. All of his music is inspired by everyday life, and Smith want's to write music that people can relate to. While having no official CD releases yet, Smith has still reserved his spot in the world of music today.

The Black Keys - Blakroc

The Black Keys- Blakroc
1. Coochie (featuring Ludacris & Ol' Dirty Bastard
2. On the Vista (featuring Mos Def)
3. Hard Times (featuring NOE)
4. Dollaz & Sense (featuring RZA & Pharoahe Monch)
5. Why Can’t I Forget Him (featuring Nicole Wray)
6. Stay Off the Fuckin’ Flowers (featuring Raekwon)
7. Ain't Nothing Like You (Hoochie Coo) (featuring Mos Def & Jim Jones)
8. Hope You’re Happy (featuring Billy Danze of M.O.P., Q-Tip & Nicole Wray)
9. Tellin’ Me Things (featuring RZA)
10. What You Do to Me (featuring Billy Danze of M.O.P., Jim Jones & Nicole Wray)
11. Done Did It (featuring Nicole Wray & NOE)

First off, this is not just The Black Keys. This is a collaboration album with tons of rappers, featuring Ludarcis, Ol' Dirty Bastard (R.I.P.), Mos Def, RZA, and many more talented rappers. Also featuring the booming female vocals of Nicole Wray. This album was made in 11 days. Nearly one day per song. Many people may wonder how they got ODB's vocals. Well, ODB had some tapes which were signed over to his brief Roc4Life venture under Def Jam, with intention for a new album to be released. This is an astonishing mix of music. Any rock/rap collaboration is great in my books. It has all of the perks of rap, but with the sound of black keys in the background. After seeing them live this summer in Denver, and briefly meeting Patrick Carney (their drummer), I think that this C.D. is a great addition to their previous ones. I would have been sadly deprived if my friend had not told me about them.

Suggested Songs: Coochie, Ain't Nothing Like You, and Done Did It

New Deftones Song From Diamond Eyes Posted

Today is a great day for Deftones fans The band has released their first single from their upcoming c.d. Diamond Eyes. Their new song is entitled Rocket Skates. You can download the song for free at Also from their website, but it is currently down from the massive hits. Below is a video posted on the Deftones Youtube Page with the song, and a very cool animation for their lyrics. After hearing this, I have sky high hopes for their new c.d., which is set to come out on May 18th.

Monday Spotlight: Death Cab For Cutie

Today, I listened to a lot of Death Cab For Cutie. Their music has been a great inspiration to me for the longest time. On my drive home from school I listened to their music, and was instantly not road raging over the traffic. Lead singer, Ben Gibbard, has an amazing voice, and has a great gift for lyrics. Throughout the entire history of Death Cab For Cutie, their music has only improved. From the beginning of Death Cab their music has been more then something special. To this day, they are still amazing, and have amazing musical abilities.

Go listen to some Death Cab For Cutie.
