LOGAN LYNN // NEW MONEY \\ OUT NOW!

  

DUDE, 2009: YOU SUCK, BRO!!!

Logan Lynn (2009)

OK, so…the title of this post is a bit dramatic and unfair. 2009 actually brought with it some really amazing things. My new record “From Pillar To Post” was released and was received better than my little brain could have imagined…First by the press, then by all of you guys. It’s been really great to finally get to share where I’ve been since 2007 with you after going into hiding shortly after I got signed with “Beat The World”. Thanks so much for listening, for helping to spread the word about my tunes, and for reminding me constantly why it is that I write songs in the first place.

On the flipside to all of this professional joy, the past year has been quite a journey for me personally. 2009 was the first year since 1994 where no Alcohol or Cocaine entered my body. Like…NONE. I got clean in the beginning of 2008, so it was tainted by a couple of months of freebasing and I didn’t quit drinking until December of ’08…but this year was clean, start to finish. I’m nearing the 2 year anniversary of my last journey to cracked-out partytown…I know for normal people that doesn’t seem like a very big deal, but for me and for anyone who has ever known or loved me, it’s noteworthy. I’m finally at a point with the getting well that it’s not such a constant struggle to function. All I really have to say about that is…FUCK YES!!! FINALLY!!!!!

At this point, I have torn down every part of my old life and am about to start over. After over 6 years of moving in one direction together, my partner and I split up in July and I’ve spent much of the past 6 months since just regrouping, catching my breath, mourning the loss of that companionship (and that of one of my dogs, Spike, who went to live with “other dad” when he left), and making a new plan. I made decisions this year that kicked me WAY out of my comfort zone and have left me feeling vulnerable and beyond frightened at times, but I’ve managed to navigate through and have finally hit the light at the end of the dark tunnel. I feel great sorrow for this loss in my life, and it is a neon example of how some things which I broke when I was high are just unfixable, no matter how hard anyone tries. I wish him nothing but the greatest happiness and hope the new year brings peace and healing for both of our sad, broken hearts.

That same week in July I went to stay with my Mom and Dad in the Oregon desert. We spent the first part of the week in a raw emotional state, talking out old festering wounds and repairing cracks in the foundation of our family unit that had been made long ago. We cried for the better part of the week, but managed to come back together at some point while I was there. That time with them is the most beautiful experience I’ve had in my life so far and things are forever changed as a result of those moments together.

I’ve made a lot of new friends this year and am really excited to be starting a new decade this week with all of you in tow. I feel light again, like things are clearing up. I am determined to bring my personal life up to speed with my professional life this year…gonna make some happy stuff happen!!!

🙂

HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYBODY!!! See you on the 7th at Doug Fir in Portland! It’s gonna be a really good show. “Cars & Trains” and “The Gentry” rule the skool.

"ZIP & A KICK!" MUSIC BLOG REVIEW CALLS LOGAN LYNN'S "FROM PILLAR TO POST" ONE OF THE BEST RECORDS OF 2009!!!

Logan Lynn (2009)

The “Zip and a Kick” music blog reviewed my new album “From Pillar To Post” today and had some really nice stuff to say about it which you can check out HERE. I’ve also posted a bit of it just below.

From “Zip and a Kick” (12/5/2009)

“Grey Skies Are Smiling. Few things in this world make me happier than coming across new music. And thanks to one of my favorite bands, The Dandy Warhols, I recently discovered a handsome fellow named Logan Lynn. I don’t think I’ve listened to an album on repeat for a while (previous records include Air’s Talkie Walkie and Beck’s Guero), and this one definitely fits the bill. Since it’s difficult to place Lynn in any one musical genre, I’ll give you my interpretation: It’s ElectroFolk you can dance to.

Signed to the DW’s Beat The World Records, fellow homogay Logan Lynn released his album From Pillar To Post digitally in September and officially in November. Lynn’s third studio album evokes the sound and feeling of his native Portland, creating a moody-pop masterpiece that hits all the sweet spots. Effortlessly melodic vocals are supported and enhanced with keyboards, synthesizers, and haunting-yet-comforting ambient sounds. It’s especially evident on the stellar tracks, “Feed Me To The Wolves” and “Bottom Your Way To The Top”.

In a year of so much good music, I’m happy to go on record in saying that Lynn’s first release for Beat The World is a transcendent, electronic dream – and one of the best albums of 2009.”

I love it when people dig it. Yay Blogworld!!!

LOGAN LYNN'S NEW RECORD REVIEWED IN "EDGE" WEEKLY (NATIONWIDE IN THE U.S.) THIS WEEK!!!

Logan Lynn (2009)

“Edge” Weekly Magazine reviewed my new record this week in Boston, San Francisco, Miami, New York City, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Fire Island, Fort Lauderdale, Las Vegas, Orlando, Philadelphia, Providence, Provincetown, & Washington D.C.!!! How’s that for some U.S. coverage, huh?

🙂

You can check out the review HERE, or read the highlights below.

From “Edge” Weekly:

“Logan Lynn has made quite a name for himself in the gay community, becoming somewhat of a staple in both Portland and San Francisco. Two albums later, he arrives with From Pillar to Post, and the whole effort can best be described as alternative rock meets techno pop…That may sound like an odd combination, but Lynn does manage to pull off the marriage quite well for the most part. “I will find a way to make you stay,” Logan desperately cries in “Feed me to the Wolves,” as he begs for a lover to ease the incredible pain a breakup is causing. In “Bottom Your way to the Top,” Lynn fights his way back from submission and begins to make sense of it all…”I can see where you want me to stay,” Logan sings in “Burning your Glory,” a pretty, passionate song about two people accepting that they belong together. Meanwhile, “Write It on My Left Arm” sounds like vulnerable, coffeehouse rock retooled especially for the club…Lynn is truly an interesting artist/songwriter and someone to keep an eye on in the future.”

FEATURE STORY AND INTERVIEW WITH LOGAN LYNN ON "OUT" MAGAZINE'S WEBSITE TODAY!

Logan Lynn (2009)

So exciting. “Out” Magazine has me as one of their featured stories today over at their website. To check it out, CLICK HERE.

Today rules!!!

You can read the full transcript from the interview below as well.

Out Magazine, December/January (2009)

From “Out” Magazine:

“NEED TO KNOW: LOGAN LYNN — The singer chats about his new album, feuding with Jeffree Star, and “putting the discomfort back in disco.” Plus: see his new video, “Bottom Your Way to the Top.”

Logan Lynn’s emo-disco-pop blend has already made him a hit with gay guys who like to hear their lives — from the highs to the lows — set to music. His ability to capture melancholy and melody is really no surprise, given that the grandmother who taught him about music also taught a similarly emotional man, Johnny Cash. We sat down with Lynn to find out about “bottoming his way to the top,” feuding with Jeffree Star, and just what “putting the discomfort in disco” actually means.

"FROM PILLAR TO POST" GOT THE BEST REVIEW EVER FROM "NWMusicBlog" TODAY!

Logan Lynn (2009)

“NWMusicBlog” (Seattle, Portland, Olympia & The Northwest) reviewed my new record today. You can read the post HERE or check things out just below…This review is pretty much as good as they get. It totally made my day earlier.

From “NWMusicBlog” (11/22/2009)

“Logan Lynn’s From Pillar To Post becomes available on iTunes, November 24th, 2009. The highly anticipated follow up to the 2006 critically acclaimed self-titled release, From Pillar to Post features a wiser and more experience Logan Lynn, who in tandem with his new label, Beat The World Records, has produced a fine album full of danceable cuts, featuring some risquĂ©, stunning, and oft times scathing lyrics.

The opening strings of Feed Me to the Wolves are being played so rapidly it sounds as if it is the water racing back after the wave has crashed and crested on the beach, rising in volume to a crescendo as the synth-bass crashes like a rogue wave pushing Logan Lynn’s melodies forward into the listeners’ ears. Heartfelt lyrics, heartbroken libretto gently glide over the highly danceable electronic pulse of the song, crying for a lost lover to assist in closure of the relationship.

The standout substance on this album is the masterful Read the rest of this entry »
