His production in the late 90s with Radiohead swelled some golden waves of sound. Heralded as a super-producer, Nigel Godrich is comin’ in hot with his new three-piece ensemble, Ultraísta. Spawned from a love of afrobeat, electronica and art, Godrich started the band with drummer Joey Waronker (The Smashing Pumpkins, Elliott Smith, Beck, R.E.M.). When it came to the vocals, instead of recruiting a well-known and already established vocalist, Godrich and Waronker took a different route by joining forces with Laura Bettinson — a London-based solo artist who until now, not many people across the pond knew didly about. The end result was the riveting creative effort, Ultraísta.
