The [Elsewhere] record is a collection of atmospheric, guitar-driven instrumentals. The whole thing has a killer shoegaze vibe, like My Bloody Valentine with the sharp edges sanded down in a way that allows you to kick back and let the waves of distorted tone wash over you. [The Jejune Institute] music occasionally warps in interesting ways, sounding like it’s being played from a worn-out VHS tape or a cassette left in the back seat of your car for too long. The atmosphere built on this album is as compelling as its sister record, but achieved in such a completely different sound. – Under The Radar
If you’re someone that recently concluded the first season of Jason Segel’sAMC TV series, “Dispatches from Elsewhere,” you know the show is incredibly strange (in a good way). The mysterious, fantastical series doesn’t play by typical storytelling rules, and it appears that offbeat sensibility extends to the release of the scores, as well. Yes, scores, as in plural. – The Playlist
