One of my most memorable concert experiences was a Sonic Youth show where the band got so deep and groovy that I fell asleep. Actual sleep. Not that the show was boring, it wasn’t, it was just so insanely mellow that it became soporific.

Likely to slot into that same awesome/soporific axis is Sarah Lipstate’s awesome Noveller live shows. Noveller’s latest album, Fantastic Planet, marks some sort of upping of the stakes, as do her excellent and guitar-loop-driven recent live shows. Noveller will now be expanding her touring schedule with a run of dates through April.

Perhaps in a bid to offset the probable dreaminess of Noveller’s show, she is teaming up with The Soft Moon to embark on said tour. The Soft Moon have a new album due on March 30, and lead single “Desertion” proves that while they mine a similar woozy territory as Noveller, they come from a much more harsh angle. A sort of yin/yang thing for your listening pleasure.

You can hip yourself to a preview of The Soft Moon’s forthcoming Deeper here and check out Noveller’s latest video for “No Unholy Mountain” below.
