john mulvey's seventh uncut playist of 2017: "Very excited this morning to get hold of the amazing new Natural Information Society, parts of which might usefully, if simplistically, be described as a jazz take on “In C”. One of the best things I’ve heard this year so far, anyway."

stuart broomer's feature on joshua abrams natural information society for the fall 2015 issue of musicworks magazine is available to read online. "Natural Information Society is a group with a mission—a singular emphasis on the human and the humane in music in the midst of a galloping digitized industry. Its work resonates with Moroccan Gnawa music, the rhythmic minimalism of Steve Reich, the modal improvisations of John Coltrane and Terry Riley, the early cross-cultural jam of Don Cherry’s Brown Rice, Anthony Braxton’s pan-cultural Ghost Trance Music and shifting echoes of Roger McGuinn’s clanging Rickenbacker and Allen Ginsberg’s harmonium."
