check out Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich’s band Ultraísta
by Bill Pearis
Having worked with Pavement, Beck, R.E.M. and, of course, Radiohead over the last 15 years, we know Nigel Godrich mainly as a producer. But now we get to meet Nigel Godrich the musician. Partnering with singer Laura Bettinson and drummer-for-the-stars Joey Waronker, Godrich has formed Ultraísta who have just released their first song, “Smalltalk,” to the internet. Densely-layered with all manner of synthesizers and percussion, it’s a claustrophobic little number you can hum along and dance to.
Watch the video for “Smalltalk” below.
