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

Yes, scores, as in plural. – The Playlist
