ULTRAISTA – SMALLTALK (Ambient/Electronica – UK)
Probably best known for his production work with Radiohead, Beck or Charlotte Gainsbourg, Nigel Godrich is also a respected musician that you’ve probably seen playing guitar and synths with Thom Yorke’s Atoms For Piece ensemble. Lately he’s been working with L.A. drummer/producer Joey Waronker and London artist Laura Bettinson on a new mysterious project called Ultraísta.
Their debut single is called “Smalltalk” and it’s currently streaming on SoundCloud and YouTube. The song is a sophisticated piece of electronica with intricate programmed beats, eerie synths and some beautifully spare vocals by Bettinson.
