From “Just Out” (1/20/2010)

LOGAN LYNN BRINGS SYNTH-CORE TO BERBATI’S PAN THIS SATURDAY

“If this Saturday’s lineup at Berbati’s Pan isn’t enough to get you out of the house, then dagnamit, we’re simply not even gonna try anymore.We mean it this time! No more tips.

Ugh, okay, FINE! We’ll keep trying, but we shouldn’t have to push very hard when the main course of the evening’s aural buffet is none other than Just Out fave and Portland purveyor of brooding synth-pop, Logan Lynn. Have we got your attention now? We knew you couldn’t quit us…

This Saturday, you can see for yourself – assuming you haven’t already – what all the fuss is about concerning Lynn and his catalog of danceable electro-rock. And for only $5, the additional acts Yeah Great Fine, Swallows, and Winnie Byrd make this show a recession-friendly must-attend for your gloomy winter weekend. You are now free to move about the country.”

-Ryan J. Prado, “Just Out”

Still from Logan Lynn: "The Last High" (2010 Bystander Productions / Beat The World Records)

Here is a bit of what Byron had to say today…

From “ByronBeck.com” : (1/15/2010)

“LOGAN’S RUN: Logan Lynn’s bio kicks off like this: “If the Land of Misfit Toys elected a team of cultural ambassadors, Logan Lynn would be its poet laureate. In Portland, Oregon’s pulsating indie music scene, he occupies a singular position: an emo prophet with a penchant for electronic beats, preaching the Good Word to drug-damaged crybabies and unemployed, bearded yuppies.”

But I just know Lynn as that cool dude who used to work at Seaplane. And oh yeah, his granny used to teach music to some dude named Johnny Cash. Now he is a full-blown rockstar, or maybe, popstar. Whatever he is, he is awesome and he has a new video to share, “The Last High,” from his hot and very dance-friendly album, “From Pillar to Post,” that’s on The Dandy Warhol’s label, Beat The World Records. It’s a big deal. And just might make him as famous as Beth-You-Know-Who.

Here is what he has to say about his new direction in music: ‘I’ve gone full blown pop with this new record that is coming out late this year. New producer, new direction. I’m, like…HAPPY or something…FINALLY.’ …And I am very happy to share a world exclusive at Byronbeck.com. Here is one of the very first public peeks at “The Last High”—it comes out Tuesday as a single and will be available at loganlynnmusic.com. It is sooo hot!”

"JUST OUT" NEWSWEEKLY REVIEW OF LOGAN LYNN'S SHOW AT "DOUG FIR" LOUNGE IN PORTLAND LAST NIGHT!!!

Logan Lynn performing at Doug Fir in Portland with The Gentry & Jen Folker (Dahlia) - 1/7/2010

I had such a nice time seeing all of you last night at the Doug Fir. It was a great turnout. Way to come show love on a Thursday night in the dead of winter, puddletown friends. I love you…SO MUCH.

Speaking of love, Portland Newsweekly “Just Out” posted a pretty amazing review of last night’s show on their website today. You can check it out HERE or you can read what they had to say below. There’s nothing like some good old-fashioned hometown sunshine to make me smile…

From “Just Out” Newsweekly (1/8/2010):
‘FEED US TO THE WOLVES, LOGAN’

“Portland features a plethora of musical geniuses; you can fill up any given week with a slew of stellar live shows boasting considerable talent (and, frankly, many do). That said, it never ceases to amaze me how excited my friends and I get when one of our beloved artists takes the stage — the endless parade of staggering talent never gets old.

Last night, Portland’s indie darling Logan Lynn delighted a rapt, wowed audience at the Doug Fir. He opened (and stayed) strong; his infamous anthem, “Feed Me to the Wolves,” set the tone for the night: alluring, assured, and more than a little bit amazing.

Not familiar with Lynn’s music? What rock have you been living under? Imagine Ladytron and Ben Gibbard having a secret, sexy love affair. Their entirely original, hybrid offspring: Logan Lynn. Shifting nimbly between energetic dance anthems and industrial alt-rock (and often combining both), he defies any easy niche or classification. Instrumentation is complex and multi-layered; lyrics are honest and exposed. Lynn, who doesn’t shy away from the “emo” moniker, doesn’t whine — he pleads, impassionedly. He pushes boundaries sonically and lyrically — and excels every time he does.

As he worked through his set, energy and momentum built — and the crowd danced. Man, did they dance. For his grand finale, Lynn brought fellow acts Cars and Trains and The Gentry on stage for a brilliant, raucous version of “Bottom Your Way to the Top.” Stunning everyone, even Lynn, Dahlia’s Jen Folker jumped on stage and joined in. One of the video’s stars, Devan McGrath, danced nearby. That moment of musical perfection sums up the entire evening: prodigious music, talent galore. Logan Lynn has a knack for turning a “concert” into a disco dance party. Isn’t that how every show should be? Well, a queer can dream.”

–Daniel Borgen

"WILLAMETTE WEEK" FEATURE PREVIEW OF LOGAN LYNN'S SHOW AT "DOUG FIR" THIS WEEK! CHECK IT OUT HERE.

Logan Lynn (2010)

The “Willamette Week” wrote a feature preview spotlight about my upcoming show this week at Doug Fir with “Cars & Trains” and “The Gentry”. Pick up a copy of this week’s issue, Check it out online HERE, or you can read what they had to say about stuff and thangz up in these parts just below.

Willamette Week (1/6/2010)

From “Willamette Week” (1/6/2010)

THURSDAY, JANUARY 7TH: Doug Fir Lounge

Logan Lynn, The Gentry, Cars & Trains / $6-

[PET SHOP SOUNDS] While recently released fourth album From Pillar To Post piles up critical accolades and new video “Bottom Your Way to the Top” strokes cable playlists from MTV to, um, Spike, Logan Lynn’s tunefully bleeped singer-songwriterly electro ballads haven’t been heard live ‘round the icon’s hometown for months. This performance reportedly marks Lynn’s debut with a live backing band (openers the Gentry), though, set against the vocals’ honeyed melancholia, beats were never the point.

-Jay Horton, Willamette Week

“Icon”, huh? Nice one.

"FEED ME TO THE WOLVES" PICKED AS ONE OF THE "TOP 50 SONGS OF 2009" BY THE "32 FT/SECOND" MUSIC NEWS BLOG!

Logan Lynn (2009)

The “32 Feet Per Second” Music, MP3 & News Blog put out their picks for the “Top 50 Songs of 2009” this week and my new record, “From Pillar To Post” made the list in the #34 position. You can check it out HERE, or just below.

From “32 Feet Per Second” (12/22/2009)

“#34 — Logan Lynn: “Feed Me To The Wolves” — We heard a lot of glossy, synth pop/rock this year. Logan Lynn, a label-mate of The Dandy Warhols, managed to separate himself from the pack. “Feed Me To The Wolves” isn’t just a shimmering, urgent bit of post-Postal Service electro-pop. It builds into an architectural elevation with bright keyboards clashing with double-tap drums. The stakes are high as Lynn freely admits, “You can feed me to the wolves if I make one mistake.” He doesn’t specify who these predators are, but we can assume that anyone who spent time in the music industry knows, the wolves are always at the door.”

Nice one, right? WOOT!
