Josh Sharp Cool drone sounds all coming from a guitar (and some effects pedals and maybe an ebow, I'm guessing). Favorite track: No Dreams.

John Cratchley The meaningful solo performer is a blessed individual,I think...blessed with the ability to sustain an internal monologue,blessed with the courage and belief to stand alone and demand attention and blessed with a quicksilver ability to invent and transform in the moment. Sarah Lipstate (Noveller) is therefore thrice-blessed. Her guitar impovisations are thoroughly articulate,memorably unique and just plain beautiful .

Sarah Lipstate is Noveller and “No Dreams”, her 6th full-length release, welcomes in an era of expanded instrumentation for the Brooklyn-based guitarist and composer. Acclaimed for her previous guitar-only albums, Lipstate tightens her grasp on her title of “An Orchestra of One” while boldly exploring the sonic possibilities of supplementing her signature lush, loop-based guitar soundscapes with textural washes of synth, haunting piano, and pulsing throbs of electronic beats. Aided by her experiences collaborating with renowned film-composer Nathan Larson on original music for several feature film scores, Lipstate expertly blends these new elements with her guitar finally realizing the richness and density that her previous guitar-based albums reached for while still undeniably sounding like Noveller.
