Album Notes
UPDATE- \"How to Miss the Ground\" is now available for free download t www.juviley.com

Juviley is the project of Israeli musician Or Zubalsky, mixing mellow melodic indie pop and melodramatic approach to sea creatures.

Zubalsky started his way as a drummer to Israel\'s leading indie acts (Shy Nobleman, Geva Alon, Daphna & The Cookies). With them he played hundreds of shows, got major press coverage and toured Europe. At the age of 21, he made the transition to songwriting.
What happens when one moves from pounding on hollow objects to writing songs? The results vary. In This case it revealed Zubalsky\'s fragile, delicate side, adding an interesting shade to his musical persona.

Determined to document his work, Zubalsky started to work on his debut album, \"How to Miss the Ground\" in Israel of 2007. He had written, arranged, produced and played almost every instrument on the album.
\"How to Miss the Ground\" is a delicate piece of work. With its heartbreaking simplicity, bitter sweet melodies and thoughtful arrangements it manages to create a unique, dreamlike atmosphere. The influences to the album include Brian Wilson, Leonard Cohen, Nick Drake, Belle & Sebastian, Yo La Tengo, and many more.


\"Juviley treads a path between indie and pop, creating a sound that comes across dreamlike and delicate. The songs are simple, but not in such a way that they are boring. Juviley\'s songs have a sleepy quality that appeals to the tender side of emotion, while his lyrics have a tendency toward the abstract, thereby accentuating the dreamy feel of the music.\" (The Aquarian, Nov 7th 2007)

\"Or Zubalsky, also known as Juviley, played with numerous indie pop acts from his native Israel, touring all of Europe as the drummer of acts such as Shy Nobelman and Daphna & the Cookies. As he set out on his own, he moved to New York and was able to create his debut album, How To Miss The Ground, an articulate collection of songs sure to warm your soul with pleasant melodies and story-like lyrics.
How To Miss The Ground mixes a lot of influences here, from Brian Wilson to Belle and Sebastian, managing to create an acoustic dream with the kind of tunes that\'ll lift your spirits during a rainy day. There\'s an innocence in his lyricism, whether he\'s talking of happiness with another (\"Two Sail Wonder\") or sliding down chimneys (the fantastic \"Carry Away\"). He gets a little Cat Stevens-like with the arrangement on the ballad \"Mexican Rain\" and his voice has a quiet impact just as Damien Rice showed on O. But Juviley carries somewhat of an upper hand with his playful and imaginary way of telling a story and conveying some of the simplest emotions on each song.
Influences aside, How To Miss The Ground is one of those rare debuts that carry a lot of clout. This well orchestrated album comes off gentle and well meaning without being pretentious or overbearing in the way that it\'s so simple and true. Indie pop has never sounded so good.\" (Evolution of Media)

\"Juviley is Or Zublasky from New York City who makes beautiful pop music.\" (You Are So Relevant)

\"I was extremely pleased to hear the gentle, cool tones of Juviley with an acoustic guitar and slightly accented vocals. His tunes are at once Belle & Sebastian and Kings of Convenience, yet with a kind of earnest, honest, naivete that may or not be intentional.\" (ThaBombShelter)
