Joshua Abrams' Natural Information Society
Joshua Abrams' Natural Information Society
 Joshua Abrams assembled Natural Information Society in 2010 following the release of his solo records for Eremite.  Abrams’ layered, hypnotic compositions, ancient/modern instrumentation and approach to group improvisation explore the intersections between jazz, traditional music, minimalism and current musical dialects.  His album "Magnetoception" was named the #3 recording of 2015 by The Wire Magazine and the #2 experimental album of the year by Pitchfork. Along with Abrams' guimbri and bass this iteration of the band will feature Mikel Avery on drums and the imagery and harmonium of Lisa Alvarado.

“Abrams has created a rare and wonderful thing, a whirling, warm-blooded extension of the cosmic traveler’s inner consciousness, filled with surprise and steadiness instead of apprehension and fear; a world where we all ought to try to live. Fans of raga, psychedelic rock, jazz and world music are in for a real treat” —Doug Mosurock, dustedmagazine.com

“It’s music that hints at the ceremonial without losing its modern bearings.” —Nate Chinen, The New York Times
