Debut Album From Laura Bettinson, Nigel Godrich and Joey Waronker Out October 2 On Temporary Residence Limited
Ultraísta-a/k/a vocalist/artist Laura Bettinson and multi-instrumentalist/producers Nigel Godrich and Joey Waronker–has confirmed a trio of exclusive U.S. live dates following the October 2 release of its self-titled debut album on Temporary Residence Limited.
The dates are the only confirmed Ultraísta U.S. appearances at present and are as follows:
October 19: Los Angeles @ Echoplex
October 22: San Francisco @ Independent
October 24: New York @ Le Poisson Rouge
Tickets are available now at the band’s store at http://www.ultraista.com.
Founded in London in 2011 around Grammy-winning producer Godrich, journeyman drummer Waronker and Goldsmiths College alum Bettinson’s mutual love of Afrobeat, electronic and dance music, visual art, and tequila, Ultraísta wasted no time creating 10 inspired tracks of exquisitely crafted electronic kraut-pop for this phenomenal first outing.
Favoring mantras over traditional choruses and distilling their compositions to the barest essentials, the band possesses the kind of masterful control over the pure anatomy of a pop song that only comes from having played a significant role in redefining the form in the 21st century.
Evidence of the above has recently leaked in the form of the tracks “Bad Insect,” “Smalltalk” and “Static Light,” which can be heard and seen variously at http://www.ultraista.com, http://www.youtube.com/user/UltraistaTV, http://soundcloud.com/ultra1sta/and www.facebook.com/Ultraista/, among other places.
