8/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 15 June 2011
Noveller is the work of guitarist and ambient play-maker Sarah Lipstate and 'Glacial Glow' is her new album out on the consistently strange yet totally fun Weird Forest. 'Glacial Glow' is pretty easygoing stuff and apparently a departure from Lipstate's usual distortion heavy approach on previous outings. This one is pure ambient goodness from start to finish, relying on strong melodies, a light guitar touch and a careful balance of synths, pedals and effects to achieve the desired sound. The result is a record that drifts from the speakers like a light breeze tickling the back of your neck. Occasionally a consistent pulse or tone will rush the melodies along like the pull of a current but for the most part these melodies swim in circles with no determined route in mind. Beautiful ambient guitar goodness.
