Admiration and recognition are two inevitable facets of Daniel Caesar’s music in lieu of the small amount of work he has released thus far. Comparisons are easy to make, yet they are just as easy to forgo. Instead, simply enjoy his small catalogue: to listen to Praise Break and the newly released Acoustic Break are the most appreciative and respectful things a person could do. Born Ashton Simmonds, Caesar is a natural in the most millennial meaning of the word; with his earliest work peppered throughout Youtube (and even long-lost Soundclouds) showcasing his preferential aptitude for acoustic versions of songs like Allan Stone’s “Unaware” and some since-deleted bedroom cover of Radiohead. However, this time, under his established moniker, Caesar has released an acoustic triplet of songs on Acoustic Break: the everlasting love ballad, “Japanese Denim,” and two reworks consisting of “Pseudo” and “Porn Star.” The latter two previously appeared on Praise Break and all three are performed barebones in comparison, with “Ian Culley on guitar, Matthew Burnett [who also shares production credits with Jordan Evans] on piano, and Brandon Horniachuk on drums.” Caesar sounds most comfortable on these songs by showcasing his raw singing ability, and while Praise Break is arguably just as rewarding for artist and listener alike, Acoustic Break alternatively proves Caesar and company are musicians, unabashedly.
