Given it’s notable “production” pedigree, Ultraista has an unexpected, but remarkably pleasant and familiar atmospheric quality that’s cut from the cloth of mid-90s chillout trip-hop that gave us artists like Olive and Lamb.

Composed of famed Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich, one of the industry’s best stickmen Joey Waronker and vocalist Laura Bettinson, Ultraista is a lush exercise in retro romanticism.

The group debuted their project at the Echoplex a few weeks back and have a full length self-titled release available now. Below, you’ll find a stream of album highlight called “Smalltalk” that clicks and whirs in all the right places.

(Jason Bentley is partial to the track “Bad Insect“, which you can hear right here.)
