Meet Nigel Godrich’s New Band, Ultraísta

Nigel Godrich is best known for being behind the boards for a slew of seminal rock records, things like Radiohead’s Kid A and Beck’s Sea Change. He’s also a practicing musician that you’ve probably seen manning some electronic rig as one of the pieces in Thom Yorke’s Atoms For Piece ensemble, and lately he’s been rolled up into another mysterious group called Ultraísta. Head below to hear “Smalltalk,” a percussive piece of electronica that serves as a platform for some spare, poppy Lykke Li-like vocals.

Here’s the accompanying video:

There’s not much there yet, but Ultraísta has a web page set up as well a Facebook page, a Tumblr and a Twitter.
