Back in May 8, 2018, I played a band called B Boys.
Brendon Avalos of the band is going on his own with Gift Wrap.
While B Boys‘ music is very punk rock.
Gift Wrap is the opposite which is more on the lo-fi new-wave pop style of music.
Have a look at the music video for Losing Count.

Trace Mountains which is the project of LVL UP‘s Dave Benton, today has released the single “Turn Twice.”
It is taken from his debut full length album, A Partner To Lean On which drops on March 30, 2018.
If you like lo-fi pop rock with some potty language and easy listening music.
Unlike his older solo material, on A Partner to Lean On Benton enlisted the talents of his friends, including Kyle Seely (of Sheer Mag on drums), Jim Hill (of Painted Zeros on electric guitar and synthesizer), Nick Corbo (of LVL UP on bass), and vocal contributions by Susannah Cutler (Yours Are The Only Ears) and Ben Smith.
Wilsen is a Brooklyn trio led by singer/songwriter Tamsin Wilson, Drew Arndt on bass and Johnny Simon on guitar.

Listen to this lovely track called Final.
Reminder that Wilsen will be playing Ottawa/Hull on April 26th at Minotaure.
Navy Gangs is a pop quintet currently residing in the washed out and overly demanding area of New York City.
Their self-titled debut EP via No Roads will drop on October 14th.
Have a listen to the streaming of the EP.
Singer/Guitarist Matthew Tillwick, Guitarist Noah Kohll, and Drummer Gavin Cordaro began orchestrating music together in 2012 at Central High School in the red light district of Omaha where they failed their junior years miserably.
For 2 months they took jobs working in the desert dome at the Henry Doorly zoo until they saved enough of their dismal wages for one way bus passes to New York City, where they moved in temporarily with Kohll’s grandmother Estelle.
After making some new friends in Washington Square park, the 3 boys found themselves in a basement scene in little Italy. It was there that they met their bassist, Wilson Keithline from Providence, Rhode Island. Together they became Navy Gangs, a troupe who’s songs grab influence from dark rooms, hopeless romanticism, table wine, and back page humor.
The EP was recorded in Noah Kohll’s grandmother Estelle’s home by Joey Kimono straight to 2 inch tape and was mixed and mastered by Steve Marion of Delicate Steve. It features vocals and percussion from long-time friend Coley Gold, a nomadic vixen who plays shows with the band often but never rings ahead of time (just shows up
Right now in America is election season (Trump vs Clinton).
On the theme of that, Brooklyn band Woods has released a music video for Politics of Free directed by Robbie Simon.
Taken from their ninth studio album City Sun Eater in the River of Light.
