So, while I love to travel and I abhor conventional behavior for conformity’s sake, I never really went through a pirate phase.

Aesthetic Perfection? Yes, that sounds about right. Deep in the underground of rusty machinery, dim lighting, and shadow dancers is Daniel Graves shrieking tales of twisted romance in “A Nice Place to Visit,” a composition of manic, punishing electro that screeches and churns with all the precision of a boiler on the brink of eruption.
