Radiohead producer and Westboro Baptist Church agitator Nigel Godrich has stepped out with new band Ultraista and their debut video for “Smalltalk,” an ambient minimal wave track that will make you want to dive into your screen and swim about like a weird fish in the song’s cool and inviting depths.

You can tell someone’s dedicated to their art when they’re willing to have bright lights shot into their eyes for an afternoon, which is what visual artist Laura Bettison had to endure for her band’s debut video. The group also features fellow megaproducer Joey Waronker, making Ultraista the kind of supergroup that you might see surrounded by brownnosers at an opening, and you ask a friend who they are, and they start throwing out artists they’ve produced like Beck, Smashing Pumpkins, and Elliot Smith, and then the warm glow surrounding them changes into the tractor beam pull that only the famous and important have.
