EXCLUSIVE WORLD PREMIER OF LOGAN LYNN’S “QUICKLY AS WE PASS” VIDEO BY PORTLAND MONTHLY MAGAZINE!

My new video “Quickly As We Pass” will be making its way out into the world in the UK next week and has been picked up by MTV here in the states so…stay tuned on premier developments there. As a little sneak peek of what’s to come, Portland Monthly Magazine is hosting an exclusive world premier of the video on their site now through the weekend. This is the ONLY way to see it until we go live with it next Tuesday, so check it out by clicking HERE.

Special thanks to Director Jeffrey McHale (who also happened to be the brains behind my “Bottom Your Way To The Top” video from 2009 and the “Black Swan/Showgirls Mash-Up” video you have all been watching for months) for having such a clear vision of what he wanted this video to be about. I’m super happy with the results.

LOGAN LYNN INTERVIEWED BY GERMAN QUEER MUSIC + POLITICS BLOG, CATCH FIRE! FREE MP3 DOWNLOAD!

The reaction to my new record in the press has been really great so far. Lots of love from Europe again this time around! The latest installment is an interview I did with German Queer music and politics blog CATCH FIRE! They went live with it today alongside a free MP3 download of “Smoke Rings” (song 2 on “I Killed Tomorrow Yesterday“). You can read it via their site HERE or just keep reading below for the full transcript.

From CATCH FIRE: (11/2/2010)

After going on US tour this summer, Logan Lynn, the winner of last year’s Queer Video Music Award, has announced in August that he would be taking an extended break from the music industry and leave “Beat The World Records”, a label founded and led by the Dandy Warhols. Instead he released his fourth record “I Killed Tomorrow Yesterday”, the follow-up to “From Pillar To Post” independently in August, donating 100% of his profits to Portland’s Q Center where he is currently working. What led the songwriter to all these decisions and how they influenced his life he explains in an interview I did with him via email during the last two weeks. I also posted “Smoke Rings”, another track from “I Killed Tomorrow Yesterday” right below this introduction – the track is the perfect background music for the following text. A second free song from the album called “Things Are Looking Up” can be found in one of October’s Music Tickers.

Catch Fire:
What interests me first of all is the question if you’d consider your new album “I Killed Tomorrow Yesterday” a “conceptual album”. To me especially compared to the stuff you’ve done before it seems very consistent, as if the decision to do this kind of eighties-pop-influenced dance music may have been a very concious decision.

Logan Lynn: Yes, both the producer Bryan Cecil and I wanted to make a dance record. We had worked together on my cover of “The Last High” by The Dandy Warhols from January of this year. The idea of doing some vintage disco dancepop take on that song was deliberate and we wrote “I Killed Tomorrow Yesterday” at the same time so we were already planted in 80’s dance party mode. Obviously I’m a child of the 80’s and 90’s and that comes out in what I listen to and what I create. Bryan wanted it to be authentic, like a time machine and I wanted it to sound like what I grew up imagining my records would sound like someday.

We ended up doing exactly that so it seemed like a perfect time to step away for awhile. The record is about me being totally disillusioned and leaving. Not sure if life imitated art or vice versa…but I’m much, MUCH happier ever since I did the whole career suicide bit in August. The overall concept was to have a big, spectacular going away party. “Fall Into New Arms” was chosen as the last track just in case it was literally the last song I ever put out. I’m not saying that it will be…but I could live with that.

Catch Fire: What exactly does “career suicide“ mean? What happend in August?

Logan Lynn: I spent the last 3 years signed to The Dandy Warhols owned and operated “Beat The World” records label and it ended up Read the rest of this entry »

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 risqué, 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 »
