LOGAN LYNN // SOFTCORE \\ OUT NOW

  

AMAZING REVIEW OF "FROM PILLAR TO POST" FROM PORTLAND NEWSWEEKLY "JUST OUT" THIS WEEK! CHECK IT OUT BELOW!

Logan Lynn (2009)

Lots of love from the hometown this week. In preparation for the big listening party my label is throwing me this weekend, Portland Newsweekly “Just Out” did a post about the party which you can read HERE. The writer, Ryan J. Prado, also included their official review of my new record which you can read below.

🙂

From “Just Out” (11/20/09)

“Where Logan Lynn excels on his debut Beat the World full-length, From Pillar to Post, is not as readily accessible as the genre in which his music resides might allude to. Were it simply a raved-up dissertation concerning the trappings of the emo generation (a term Lynn actually embraces), it might be dubbed a hybrid anomaly, pitting two oft-divided musical milieus into one, shattering a once-proverbial mold. But Pillar… does more than that. Opener “Feed Me to the Wolves” writhes with industrial-rock melancholia, with Lynn’s lethargic monotone repeating, “I won’t stop until I find a way to make you stay.”

Dance jams like “Alone Together” offer respite from the gloom, but only if you aren’t paying attention — like adding layers to a wedding cake, Lynn adds frighteningly catchy minor chord sediments to already shaky bedrock. When you reach the album’s finale — among the busy, ambient blips on “The Dotted Line” — Lynn bellows robotically the line, “It’s so hard to say goodbye.” He’s right; listening to Pillar… poses an awfully disheartening conundrum: Should I keep listening to such personal expression? And just as a savage stares at the sun despite the spots, you will listen to Lynn despite the sadness.”

READ THE "OREGON MUSIC NEWS" INTERVIEW WITH LOGAN LYNN HERE! STORY RUNS ON THEIR HOMEPAGE THIS SUNDAY!

Logan Lynn (2009)

I was interviewed by “Oregon Music News” last week and the story went live today. To check it out, CLICK HERE or you can read the full transcript below. The story will also be running on the homepage of the “Oregon Music News” website this Sunday, so…YAY. Thanks, OMN! I love it when magazines print my words as I say them instead of picking and choosing little snippets and making me sound stupid.

Here’s the transcript, folks:

From “Oregon Music News” (11/19/2009)

“Logan Lynn makes emotronic, electropop. A gay man from America’s heartland, raised in a family of cult-like, born-again Christians, he’s found a way out of some dark, lost days. Influenced by folk music growing up and DJs in Chicago, Logan’s demo was titled This Is Folk Techno. Sentimental lyrics paired with capricious electro-beats, Logan’s sound ranges from dejected to dancey, creating moods that resemble The Postal Service. Relishing in Portland’s creativity, Logan is signed to The Dandy Warhols’ label Beat The World and is becoming a people person. He celebrates his new album From Pillar To Post with a listening party on Sunday, November 22nd at Jinx Bar with The Dandy’s Zia McCabe spinning records as DJ Rescue, but before the drinks, Logan chats about being emo, hiding under the sheets, and grandma’s adages.”

OMN: Are you emo? What’s wrong with that word? Or is it just right?

LL: Well, that depends. Read the rest of this entry »

Truth Explosion Magazine (2009)

From “Truth Explosion” Magazine:

“Logan Lynn: “Demons And White Light Saved My Life”

When I was about 12 years old I went to a sleepover and watched the original Chucky movie – I was so scared that, in order to keep myself from freaking out, I stayed up all night and counted all the stitches in a rug…it worked.

Logan Lynn: A couple of years back, after a 16-year cocaine addiction, I entered a specialty drug rehab clinic in St. Helens, Oregon.

Truth.Explosion.Magazine: Can you tell us about your first night there?

LL: The first night of my rehab experience in St. Helens was literally hell on earth.

TEM: Hell on earth huh? That’s pretty intense…

LL: I had the worst pain all through my body, massive paranoia…I was not functioning and had completely lost what was left of my humanity at that point.

TEM: Sounds so horrible…

LL: I was 10 hours or so into detox and suddenly, in the middle of the night, my room filled with a bright white light. Then all I could hear was screaming…not human screaming.

TEM: What sort of screaming?

LL: This was animal-like, mixed with human screams and it was coming from outside the window. The lights were so bright I couldn’t see, and then suddenly, it stopped.

TEM: All right, so you weren’t joking about the “hell on earth” bit – did you make a break for it? Read the rest of this entry »
