NOVELLER – ‘No Dreams’ CD
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.
ALESSANDRO CORTINI – ‘Forse 2’ 2LP
Alessandro Cortini’s second release in his Forse trilogy is full of thick analog brightness and deep analog warmth. Despite also being fully composed on a Buchla Music Easel, the feeling of Forse 2 is quite different from Forse 1 and this deluxe double vinyl release is the ultimate way to experience this engaging work.
