I have been a fan of the multi-talented guitarist and filmmaker Sarah Lipstate, aka Noveller, since seeing her open a slam-packed Bear In Heaven show at Glasslands back in 2010. Shortly thereafter, she released the EP Desert Fires, which at the time was the high watermark of her finely textured guitar compositions, especially the song “Three Windows Facing Three Doors”. Being a filmmaker, Lipstate’s songs have an abstract, cinematic quality to them; Lipstate carries you with her on her carefully constructed waves of sound. Although she was formerly with the bands Parts & Labor and Cold Cave, Lipstate is one of the few musicians who I would venture has more true potential on her own; her compositions feel complete without the trappings of a full band.

With her new eight-song LP Glacial Glow, Lipstate has 0nce again delivered compositions of layered, subtle beauty. She played two of those compositions – “Ends” and “Entering”, the bookends to Glacial Glow, on this night. Two new songs, “Cyanne” and “Darkheart”, joined “Starve” from her split LP with unFact (David Wm. Sims of the Jesus Lizard), to round out the set. Lipstate’s work continues to be absolutely mesmerizing – I can’t wait to hear what she comes up with next.

I recorded this set in the same manner as the Lotus Plaza and Disappears sets, and the sound is outstanding.  Enjoy!
