Nigel Godrich is best known for his production work with Radiohead (he’s had a major role in the making of every album since Kid A), and most recently, working with Thom Yorke’s Atoms For Peace. Now Godrich has formed a band with Los Angeles drummer Joey Waronker and London singer Laura Bettinson. Under the moniker Ultraísta, Godrich and co are making cold synth pop along the lines of Radiohead’s excellent “Lotus Flower.” In fact, that’s exactly what debut single “Smalltalk” sounds like, a Radiohead song without Thom Yorke.
