MP3 At 3PM: Emily Wells

emilybw400Watching Emily Wells piece together a song brings to mind a disciplined gourmet chef at work. The L.A.-based Wells is a violin prodigy, and her music is equal parts eerie vocals and loop-upon-loop of violin (she used up to 21 violin tracks for some songs on her self-released EP, Dirty), topped with a few precisely measured xylophone phrases and a dash of ukulele. You must check out Wells’ unearthly cover of the Notorious B.I.G.’s “Juicy.”
