Along with the glorious virtuoso jazz vocalist Fay Victor, Swiss miss Brooklynite Emilie Weibel is one of the shining lights leading Brooklyn's contingent of heavenly voices. While Victor is a bluesy queen of jaw-dropping improvisation, Weibel is the subtle songbird with an equally mesmerizing presence and a DIY ethos. In her Omoo guise, Weibelwith an assortment of entrancing lo-fi electronics, loop devices, a cheap music box and voice effectscreates minimalist vocal magic, occasionally with a honeyed backdrop of Stereolab-like la-la's but always with an aesthetic all her own that is downright otherworldly. It's no wonder NY sax titan Darius Jones enlisted both Weibel and Victor for his vocal troupe.
