Linda McDonald: Apologies to Nicaragua for cancelled Iron Maidens show.

Linda McDonald

Apologies to Nicaragua ~ This is so fucking LAME!!! Sorry, this is the second time we were unable to perform for you, Nicaragua. I don't understand why this keeps happening, but perhaps the promoters can answer better than we can. We were and are ready to go, waiting for information only to find out this show has been cancelled. We have nothing to do with this decision as we are packed and ready to go!! From what i understand it is not the fault of Rock Tours Nicaragua either. All I can say at this point is, we are very sorry. :-(

Eilidh Mckellar: in the studio, Los Angeles California

 Eilidh Mckellar
After one year of songwriting it's time to head to LA in April to make my debut record! I learned the C major chord yesterday so I'm good to go.... :)
Up next for me- this April it's time to produce Eilidh McKellar's debut. We've been working on songs via Skype from her native Scotland, and with 14 songs now ready to go, the 19 year old singer and guitarist is ready to strut her stuff! Eilidh (Ay-lay) offers an interesting blend of indie rock, blues, and pop music with a nod towards the New World. Not only can Eilidh play with heartfelt emotion on the guitar, her voice comes from deep in the Mississippi River delta- where crocodiles lie in wait and Southern Comfort allays the sins of the soul. Look out LA- Eilidh is coming to town!

Dropped by the Gibson private showroom in Beverly Hills this morning to pick up some guitars for recording. CHeck them out! Big thanks to Gibson! — in Los Angeles, CA.

 Eilidh Mckellar
The double neck! Woohoo! —Day number 2 in the studio! Sounding very good!

Sarah Lipstate: Noveller - sonic palette of guitar color

Noveller is the solo project of Brooklyn-based guitarist and filmmaker Sarah Lipstate. Handling the electric guitar as her muse, Lipstate summons a sonic palette so rich as to challenge the listener to conceive of how it’s housed in a single instrument manipulated by a solitary performer.

She released her first two full-length albums on Brooklyn noise label No Fun Productions in 2009. Noveller’s latest full-length, ‘Desert Fires’, came out via Lipstate’s own imprint, Saffron Recordings, in July of 2010. Saffron Recordings also released a split LP between Noveller and unFact (David Wm. Sims of the Jesus Lizard) last year. Lipstate is currently working on the follow-up to ‘Desert Fires’ to be released by Weird Forest in 2011.

Recently, Lipstate performed at the Suoni Per Il Popolo fest in Montreal, Decibel Festival in Seattle, and Unsound Festival in Krakow. Noveller has toured the U.S. and internationally, at times supporting acts such as Xiu Xiu, the Jesus Lizard, Man Forever, Aidan Baker, and Emeralds.

She has previously performed as a member of Cold Cave, Parts & Labor, and One Umbrella. Lipstate has also participated in Rhys Chatham’s Guitar Army, and Glenn Branca’s 100 guitar ensemble.

Her short films screened at the SXSW film festival in 2006 and 2007, and earned Lipstate the “Diamond in the Rough Cut” award for exceptional emerging filmmaker at Cinematexas 2006. She debuted a new film, ‘Interior Variations’, at the New Museum as part of No Fun: Infinite Sound and Image in May 2009. The film also screened at the 12th Kyoto International Film & Video Festival in Japan, and as part of the ‘New York Avant Cinema Series’ at the 23rd Singapore International Film Festival. Lipstate’s film works were showcased in the Women of NY Cinema screening as part of the 2009 NY Eye + Ear Festival in Tribeca.

Lipstate received a BS in Radio-Television-Film at the University of Texas at Austin in December 2006, and currently resides in the Greenpoint neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY.

Description“Some artists traverse boundaries. Sarah Lipstate’s work seems to come from a world where they never existed. Her color-rich visual art has a mournful literary quality to it; her short films trigger collisions of emotional crosscurrents; and her instrumental music, which she makes under the name Noveller (emphasis on the middle syllable), seems to call to attention all senses at once, to the point where even the word music seems somehow limiting.” – Time Out NY

“…simultaneously soothing and mind-wrecking noise, along with a compositional depth that most loud-for-the-hell-of-it guitar droners never reach.” – NY Press
