(Self produced) 10 Tracks - Perfection Kills is the ninth release from South African blues-rock guitarist, songwriter, and vocalist, Dan Patlansky. Picking up right where his 2017 Introvertigo left off, Perfection Kills proves Patlansky is a guitar slayer, a killer vocalist, and now, a sharpshooter behind the mixing console.
While long-time producer Theo Crous (who worked on Patlansky’s previous two albums) was involved in the writing and pre-production stages, Patlansky opted to produce Perfection Kills himself. Far from being an exercise in self-ego-massaging, it’s an inspired decision, as the pristine production values perfectly complement Patlansky’s signature brand of stadium blues. After all, who knows an artist’s music better than themselves? And when that artist knows their way around a studio the way Patlansky does, the result is a career-best record!
