“Abrams makes music that falls between genres. There are hints of jazz, rock, raga, and many cultural musics, but it all feels singular."
We are very proud that Simultonailty will be released in Europe on Glitterbeat’s new label imprint: tak:til
The follow-up to Joshua Abrams's critically acclaimed 2015 album Magnetoception is here. Simultonality, credited to Joshua Abrams & Natural Information Society (NIS), is the first recording in the project’s nine year, four album history made by a regularly gigging manifestation rather than a special assembly of friends. Recorded in 2014 & 2015 in single takes by the full ensemble during & after tours of the U.S. & Canada, Simultonality sets out new pathways for Abrams & the NIS to reach the next summit, & once more affirms the project's unique approach to joining traditional musics, American minimalism & jazz with the Gnawa ceremonial instrument the guimbri.
