Stop What You’re Doing And Listen to “Brakelights” by Omar Apollo


Befitting of the song title, as soon as I heard "brakelights" come on during a recent SoundCloud shuffle, everything stopped. The latest single from guitar-laden crooner Omar Apollo stood out to me instantly. It brought me back to the first time I heard the guitar riffs on Steve Lacy's infectious song, "Ryd." We don't know a lot about Omar except that he's from Indiana, he might be Jimmy Fallon's biggest fan, and he can play the hell out of a guitar and bass. But that's all we need to know for now. We'll keep our eyes and ears on Omar for more info more music. Stream "brakelights" below.
