 Joshua Abrams formed Natural Information Society (NIS) in 2010. Working from Abrams' orchestration of traditional and contemporary instrumentation, NIS creates long-form psychedelic environments informed by jazz, minimalism, and traditional musics.  The group’s 2015 album, "Simultonality," appeared on many year-end lists including Rolling Stone, Uncut, and The Wire. "Mandatory Reality," the band’s latest recording, was released by Eremite Records in April 2019.

“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
