NoiVad At first I thought this was a joke, especially with such a silly cover, but after hearing the release, the cover is perfect & the concept ballsy for a musician only known for electronic music and brilliantly executed. Still figuring out my favorite acoustic adaptation, but Anti-body is a good first pick. Wonderfully entertaining—especially the faster tempo tracks. Favorite track: Antibody.

James Wood The range of musical ability Daniel shows here is simply awe-inspiring. I truly hope he does something like this again in the future with some of his newer material. Favorite track: Inhuman.

On August 31st, 2013, Aesthetic Perfection’s Daniel Graves did something never imagined possible: He played an entirely acoustic concert as Aesthetic Perfection. Pulling it off took a year of planning, months of preparation and weeks of rehearsal. Even then, nothing was perfect. How could it be? No computers, no backing tracks, nothing but what each musician brought with them to the stage. For this special live show, Aesthetic Perfection’s music was presented by a band comprised of Daniel Graves on vocals, Lauren Krothe on piano and backing vocals, Marquis Howell III on upright bass, Tim Van Horn on drums, and Tim Skold on acoustic guitar. Recorded at Complex in Glendale California, a venue renowned for its incredible sound system and intimate concert experience.

Graves said of the experience “I was more musically vulnerable than I had ever been before. The whole experience taught me that it’s ok to be vulnerable, it’s ok to be flawed, it’s ok to make mistakes, it’s ok to relinquish control and put your trust in others. Though much of this has been part of the Aesthetic Perfection “philosophy” since Day 1, putting that into practice is easier said than done. As a self confessed control freak, it pushed me to the brink of madness. Now that all is said and done, I’m not stressed anymore. I’m just proud of what my friends and I accomplished, and I’m grateful to them for their hard work and creativity that made my vision come to life. I’m grateful to the fans who came and showed their support for an utterly absurd idea: An acoustic “industrial” show. And now, I’m excited that I can share this little piece of Aesthetic Perfection history with those who were unable to be there or wish to see it again. Who knows? Maybe we’ll do this again sometime.“
