Did someone say Radiohead? It's likely, because Ultraísta could be considered a close relative. Showcasing the talents of Nigel Godrich, the Grammy-winning producer who is endearingly referred to as Radiohead's sixth member, Ultraísta formed in 2011 when Godrich bonded with drummer Joey Waronker and singer Laura Bettinson over a mutual admiration for Afrobeat, electronic, dance music, and tequlia. Now the trio has a 10-song LP of intoxicating, synth-textured pop. Bettinson's vocals are a perfect guide through the record's sparse arrangements and labyrinth of rhythms. With a David Letterman appearance already under their belts, the group is definitely on its way. Don't miss your chance to experience their explosive sonic chemistry live tonight. Experimental hip-hop producer Guillermo Scott Herren, aka Prefuse 73, joins for the ride.
