"In her Omoo guise, Weibel—with an assortment of entrancing lo-fi electronics, loop devices, a cheap music box and voice effects—creates 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" - The Village Voice

Yeaah! Nice new review about oMoO by Brad Cohan in The Village Voice
"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, Weibel—with an
assortment of entrancing lo-fi electronics, loop
devices, a cheap music box and voice effects
—creates 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." — By Brad Cohan
