Magnetoception, Abrams’s third Natural Information Society album for Eremite, demonstrates this concept wonderfully. Fans of 2010’s Natural Information and 2012’s Represencing will find themselves in familiar territory here, marked most notably by Abrams’s guimbri (among his other instruments) but also by Emmett Kelly and Jeff Parker’s electric guitars, Lisa Alvarado’s harmonium, and Ben Boye’s autoharp.
On Magnetoception, Joshua Abrams is back exploring new contexts for the guimbri, the three-stringed north African bass lute at the heart of his Eremite recordings Natural Information (2010) and Represencing (2012). The artist's first large-scale work on vinyl, Magnetoception began as a commission by Eremite for Abrams to make a double LP based in extended performances by an ensemble of Abrams, guitarists Emmett Kelly and Jeff Parker, and drummer Hamid Drake

Joshua Abrams’s “Magnetoception” came out on vinyl in mid-May, and I’ve been
taking my time absorbing it, which feels appropriate. Mr. Abrams, the
improvising bassist from Chicago, gathered a group around him to play music
that moves in regular rhythmic paces and according to compositional direction,
but slowly, with lots of contemplative space, and with modern and ancient
instruments: stand-up bass and electric guitar and drum set, but also a frame
drum and a guimbri, the three-string African bass lute associated with the
Moroccan Gnawa musicians. Spread across a vinyl double album — or on iTunes, if
you like — it’s patient, layered music that’s always heading somewhere,
sometimes spare and sometimes complex and shimmering.
