To Noveller's Sarah Lipstate, guitars are still quite relevant in experimental music

Noveller is the solo project of Sarah Lipstate, who had previously been in an experimental rock band from Austin called One Umbrella before she moved to Brooklyn to pursue music more fully. Upon moving to New York, she ended up joining Parts & Labor and played on that outfit's critically acclaimed album Receivers. After leaving that band in 2009, Lipstate focused on her solo work and collaborations, and before long, her imaginative guitar work using loops and creative sound manipulation struck a chord with fans of ambient music and noise.
