Noveller’s “Red Rainbows”: Music review

I saw Noveller open for The Soft Moon at Williamsburg Hall of Music this weekend and felt the need to buy a number of her albums.
Noveller is Sarah Lipstate, a guitar, and a variety of effects pedals including loop machines. And sometimes a violin bow. Using that arsenal, she creates lush reverberating introspective soundscapes.
Noveller’s “Red Rainbows” (August 2009) features ringing distorted chords, the sounds of broken glass, synth tones, and other assorted noises, making this album a sonically larger and more expansive experience than some of the other albums I’ve listened to.
As a live performer, she is able to captivate her audience and draw them in as as she loses herself in her sound world, pacing back and forth, tilting her head back and closing her eyes.
