Noveller’s Multicolored Soundscapes Will Make Your Head Spin

Fantastic Planet

Oozing, pulsing and humming with energy, the multi-colored soundscapes of Noveller, aka Austin’s Sarah Lipstate, will cause your head to spin. Unlike much ambient music, which functions best as background listening, her wordless songs reward close attention, with guitars and synths intertwining to generate a dazzling host of tantalizing noises. Tracks blend seamlessly into one another, just as moods shift slowly from somber to joyous and back and textures range from dense to airy. Stimulating and soothing at once, the aptly named Fantastic Planet makes everyday life seem more vivid and full of endless possibility.


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
