Useless
by Omar Apollo
(1 play) | (0 fans)

"Much like fellow Latinx newcomers Cuco and Kali Uchis, Apollo is part of a rising generation of self-starting Spanglish-language artists who have captivated pop fans with their bicultural cool. But it’s not your abuelo’s brown-eyed soul: Much like his purple predecessor, Apollo pairs sensual riffs with lyrics that toy with sexuality, gender and the myriad labels people use to define the two. As for Apollo, he doesn’t subscribe to any of them". Read the rest of this great L.A. Times article about Omar Apollo's latest release- https://www.latimes.com/entertainment-arts/music/story/2020-10-16/omar-apollo-mexican-american-prince

Toots and the Maytals, originally called The Maytals, were a Jamaican musical group, one of the best known ska and rocksteady vocal groups. The Maytals were formed in the early 1960s and were key figures in popularizing reggae music. Frontman Toots Hibbert is considered a Reggae pioneer on par with Bob Marley. https://www.npr.org/2020/09/12/912245520/toots-hibbert-reggae-ambassador-and-leader-of-toots-and-the-maytals-dies-at-77
