    A solid, if a little subtle, debut that promises great things while delivering many very good ones.

    Somewhere Else certainly reveals itself slowly, but persist and there's real beauty to be found here.
  3. By endowing his demos and bedroom meditations with a sense of hopeful purpose, tempered by a resolute knowingness of the world around him, Juul has made Somewhere Else something quite special--a sometimes hesitant but ultimately warmly inviting record to cling to in this waning winter season.

    There will be those who will listen to Indians and not get swept along with their world-weary tidings but for those who feel the same or just want to escape, this LP is perfection.

    A deceptively lush record full of moments of striking beauty.

    Handsome, sparkly stuff.
  7. Feb 1, 2013
    It is a debut album of real class.

    At times, a lack of crescendo leaves his songs teetering on the precipice of drama. The money shot, though, comes with the title track--an epic, swirling conclusion to his debut.
  9. Jan 31, 2013
    Juul's vocals and production are emotive and permeable, always trying to convey something without any sort of coercion as to what that feeling's supposed to be.
  10. Feb 4, 2013
    Musically, Somewhere Else treads the ground between organic performance and arrangement, as well as the efficiently expansive possibilities of minimalism and pop in electronic music.

    This luminously lovely collection is well-judged and intensely personal. [Feb 2013, p.74]
  12. Under The Radar

    "Reality Supreme," like so much of the wonderful Somewhere Else, is bold, yet brittle. [Mar-Apr 2013, p.100]
