Album of the Week – 13/03/20

Album of the Week – 13/03/20

Despite the madness going on in the world, there’s some great new music released this week! There’s a new album from Deap Lips who are a combination of Deap Valley and The Flaming Lips. There’s also work from Hilary Woods (Birthmarks). Porridge Radio is a new name to me at least, bu their new album Every Bad is definitely worth exploring.

This week, we went for the first album in 8 years from Ultraísta.

Album of the Week – Ultraísta – Sister

Ultraísta – consisting vocalist / producer Laura Bettinson (FEMME / lau.ra), multi-instrumentalist/producer Nigel Godrich (Radiohead) and drummer/producer Joey Waronker (Beck, R.E.M., Atoms for Peace) – have confirmed details for their new LP. Sister will be released on March 13th via Partisan Records and will be the group’s first album of new music in nearly eight years. 

Much of the music on Sister grew out of sporadic improv sessions, with Godrich ultimately paring everything down to its bare essentials at his London studio space. The resulting nine songs create a cinematic sci-fi soundscape that’s both exhilarating and laser-focused. Behind Bettinson’s warm, inviting vocal delivery and anchored by Waronker’s sophisticated percussion work, Sister easily stands tall among the impressive and extensive careers of each band member.

“All three of us have so many transferable skills,” explains Godrich, “and Ultraísta is an opportunity to do something outside what we’d normally be doing. It’s all of us wearing different hats. For me, when I’m working with another creative force my point of entry into the music is completely different. With this project it can take a lot longer because we’re able to be more self-indulgent. It’s a control freak’s dream!”
