On Noveller's new Fantastic Planet, Sarah Lipstate's detail-oriented approach to experimental guitar is foregrounded for the first time, allowing the pieces to breathe with a vibrancy that they hadn't been able to attain before. Featured Tracks: Play Track. Into the Dunes" - NovellerVia SoundCloud. Even from the opening strains of the album's lead track, "Into the Dunes", all of the moving parts spring forth in total clarity. It's a striking moment, given how often over her last couple of records she's been reliant on a sort of swooping sonic muck as her main songwriting tool. Her pitch-warped melodies bubble and coalesce into a creeping latticework of booming bass, twitchy drones, and slurred guitar leads. Each part is given distinct and clear weight within the mix, making the moments when Lipstate unleashes something a little bigger that much more powerful.
