Ultraista play Underground Arts on Wednesday + ticket/signed LP giveaway

Before Radiohead's producer Nigel Godirch gets into full out Atoms For Peace mode with Thom Yorke and company, he'll head out on tour with his side-project band, Ultraista. The project features himself with singer Laura Bettinson and Beck drummer Joey Waronker. On first listen, their tunes are very remniscent of Yorke's solo album The Eraser, which isn't a big surprise since Godrich had a hand in that record as well. Don't worry, it's not a bad thing at all.

Before Radiohead's producer Nigel Godirch gets into full out Atoms For Peace mode with Thom Yorke and company for their record Amok, he'll head out on tour with his side-project band, Ultraista. The project features Godrich with singer Laura Bettinson and Beck drummer Joey Waronker. On first listen, their tunes are very remniscent of Yorke's solo album, The Eraser, which isn't a big surprise since Godrich had a hand in that record as well. Don't worry, it's not a bad thing at all. 

In anticipation of their mini tour, the trio released a new video for "Wash It Over" off their debut self-titled record which was released last fall. You can watch that and listen to "Gold Dayzz" below. 

The tour kicks off here in Philadelphia this Wednesday(01/23) at Underground Arts with Prefuse 73. Tickets for the show are still on sale and can be found HERE

If you're feeling lucky, we have a pair of tickets and a signed Ultraista LP to give away. All you have to do is leave a comment below with your favorite Nigel Godrich produced album(Radiohead, Thom Yorke, Beck, Here We Go Magic, and more). We'll pick a winner early Wednesday.
