Noveller is the solo project of Brooklyn-based guitarist and filmmaker Sarah Lipstate. Handling the electric guitar as her muse, Lipstate summons a sonic palette so rich as to challenge the listener to conceive of how it's housed in a single instrument manipulated by a solitary performer.
She's previously released records on No Fun Productions, Weird Forest, Important Records, and her own imprint Saffron Recordings. In 2014, Lipstate announced her signing with Fire Records.
Fire released Noveller's latest full-length 'Fantastic Planet' in January 2015.
Noveller has toured with St. Vincent, Radiolab, Xiu Xiu, the Jesus Lizard, U.S. Girls, Aidan Baker, and Emeralds. Lipstate has collaborated with several renowned musicians, including live improvised duo performances with Carla Bozulich (Evangelista, The Geraldine Fibbers), David Wm. Sims (the Jesus Lizard, Scratch Acid), Lee Ranaldo (Sonic Youth), and JG Thirlwell (Foetus, Manorexia).
She has previously performed as a member of Cold Cave, Parts & Labor, and One Umbrella. Lipstate has also participated in Rhys Chatham Guitar Army, Ben Frost Music for 6 Guitar Ensemble, and Glenn Branca 100 guitar ensemble.
