LOGAN LYNN // NEW MONEY \\ OUT NOW!

  

LISTEN: Logan Lynn Releases Cover of “We Can’t Stop” (Miley Cyrus) – FREE DOWNLOAD

We Can't Stop (2013) Logan Lynn

On the heels of my summer tour of the U.S. with Big Dipper and Conquistador, I have just released a cover of We Can’t Stop (by Miley Cyrus) that is going to blow your mind.  Click HERE to listen and download the single free on Soundcloud or HERE to do the same on Bandcamp.  The official lyric video is also streaming on YouTube HERE.  It technically doesn’t come out until Tuesday (9/17) but…you know…we can’t stop.

😉

Produced by Gino Mari, who also produced my 2012 release Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks, this song features all organic instrumentation unlike anything else I’ve recorded to date.  Why Miley, you ask?  Well…I thought what Miley did on the VMAs was hilarious.  I mean…Robin Thicke is a disgusting misogynistic pig who actively promotes rape culture, but that’s not Miley’s fault.  She’s just young and awkward and having fun.  I would have totally Twerked on him and everyone else in my way at her age.  Going nuts and telling authority figures to go screw themselves is part of growing up.  Also, where do I get one of those giant foam fingers she had for that performance?  Is that a sports thing or what?!

You may notice that this cover (and my latest single, released 8/13) are a bit of a departure from the electronics I’ve become synonymous with over the course of the past 15 years.  These are just a glimpse into the new direction I’m headed in sonically.  I have to keep changing things up or I get bored.  This round I’ve put down the dance music a little and Gino has been playing all kinds of instruments instead.  It’s been turning out really warm and special so far as a result.  I figured this cold, dead pop song was the perfect thing to try and bring to life.  Don’t get me wrong – I actually really like Miley’s version, too…but it’s not particularly warm.

Logan Lynn Reviewed by Willamette Week (July 2013)

I just picked up a copy of the current issue of Willamette Week and discovered that they picked my Portland show as one of their “Highly Recommended” events this week and included the following review of my new record, tour, return to music, etc. in print and online.

Thank you, Willy Week! I love love LOVE the hometown welcome I was given this week by the local press and community. Portland Monthly Magazine, The Portland Mercury, PQ Monthly and Willamette Week all picked the Portland stop on my summer tour as a must-do…which was such a treat! I’m blushing over all the gushing, Puddletown.  Thanks so much!!!

🙂

Logan Lynn Review in Willamette Week (July 10th, 2013)From Willamette Week (July 10th, 2013 Print Issue)

“[GLOW STICKS, BOAS AND CASIO DREAMS] Since announcing his “extended hiatus” from music in 2010, former Dandy Warhols protégé Logan Lynn stepped back from the corporate machine behind major-label breakthrough From Pillar to Post and joined the staff at local queer hub Q Center. A few years and a charity record later, the Portland electro-popper is back with Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks, a layered confection of shiny beats, blips and synths with more lyrical heft (“Hologram,” “Loud Enough”) than the average dance-floor soundtrack. Lynn is back on the road, too, thanks to the Accidental Bear Queer Music Benefit tour, a five-city bicoastal trek to support LGBT and related mental-health resources nationwide. Also on the disco-ball-begging bill: trippy glam rockers Conquistador and the hairy hip-hop of Chicago bear MC Big Dipper, which is most assuredly not a football thing.”

Logan Lynn LIVE at Beatbox in San Francisco (2013)

I’m back in Portland for a few days midway through our summer tour and figured I would tell you things about the first leg of shows!

The tour kicked-off in San Francisco at Beatbox on Friday night and was great. I heard after the show that one of my all-time musical heroes Bob Mould had asked the tour organizer the day before what time I was performing and then he came to the show! So awesome.

Of course, this also means that Bob got to see me knock both of my bottles of water off of a stool and onto the stage during a song, where they began pouring out into a rat’s nest of wires surrounding me. In an act of quick-thinking, fancy footwork, I repurposed my green LaCoste face towels (which Gino and I use to keep the sweat from blinding us on stage) and used one foot to mop it up while I sang the opening of our next song. It was pretty special. Here’s to not getting publicly electrocuted on stage in SF!

Here are some photos from that show:

Logan Lynn Interviewed by PQ Monthly This Week! Read it Here.

Logan Lynn Summer Tour 2013 - Photo by Rowan Wren copy

I was interviewed by PQ Monthly this past week about my summer tour, and this Thursday’s Portland show at Mississippi Studios. Have a gander at the original on the PQ site HERE, or just keep reading below…

From PQ Monthly, July 2013:

Now that July 4th has come and gone, you can start planning for July 11th–that’s the date the tour with the longest official title ever–Accidental Bear Queer Music Tour Benefit for LGBTQ Mental Health Services and Suicide Prevention–descends upon our fair city. The lineup is almost as long as the name–it includes Big DipperLogan Lynn, and Rica Shay to name a few–and that’s a very good thing for lovers of music everywhere. (You can check out the entire lineup here.) We had a chance to chat with local music-maker Logan Lynn, who also helps head up Q Center, just before he headed out on tour–we talked un-retiring retirement, tour preparation, the mass of talent assembled for this very good cause, and queer mental health services.

PQ Monthly: You’ve talked lots about the tour prep–and the rigorous schedule involved. Aside from working your ass off, what’s been the best, most rewarding thing about all this so far?

Logan Lynn: Yeah, it’s a lot of work to make a tour happen, and I have Read the rest of this entry »
