Thanks to Insite Atlanta Entertainment Magazine for naming my new record ADIEU one of the “Top 5 Albums of 2016”! Click HERE to check it out, or keep reading below:

From Insite Atlanta Entertainment Magazine: (January 2017 Issue)

“Adieu is quite possibly Logan Lynn’s best album yet, as each song here builds on the next for an impressively cohesive set, ending in the brilliantly wry ‘Oh, Lucifer’. Despite a mix of up tempo indie pop and more introspective piano tracks they fit together beautifully. Lynn continues to impress eight records into his career.” Read the rest of this entry »

Thanks, New York! xoxo

From BestofWNY.com: (1/17/2017)

“Logan Lynn – Adieu – Portland, Oregon based musician, artist, producer, activist and television personality Logan Lynn has released his 8th album tilted Adieu a fifteen song cycle that deals with Lynn’s struggles through addiction, mental health problems, depression, relationship upheavals and the sudden death of his constant companion his beloved Pomeranian. Producer Gino Mari helps craft Lynn’s snippets and jumbles of sounds, lyrics, melodies and more that had been collected on Lynn’s phone and other media devices for Adieu into a cohesive story. Lynn has always been open about his mental health struggles and the cathartic medium his music and songs have been to his road to recovery. Delivered over two slabs of delicious red vinyl the sound is a mash of synth pop and alternative singer songwriter delivered with an open nakedness demanded of the material. Check out the tracks “Go There When You Want To Be Loved”, “Can You Get Me Off?”, the dirge like “I Am Like A Dog Now”, the heavy riff of “The One”, the thumper “Break Me Down” and “We Will Overcome’. A couple of other standout tracks include the title cut “Adieu” and “Oh, Lucifer” Lynn’s middle finger kiss off to the fundamentalist cult he escaped from as a youth.

Disco Recomendado:

Uno de los regresos más esperados desde este espacio de música ya está acá, el dolor que inspira la perdida, la perdida que inspira a la creación, toda expresión que fluye como la sangre en las venas, vuelve en uno de los trabajos más maduros de Logan Lynn.

Actor & Comedian Jay Mohr Pens Heartfelt Review of Logan Lynn’s Forthcoming Double Album “ADIEU.”, Releasing September 23rd

Jay Mohr Review - Logan Lynn ADIEU (2016)

by Jay Mohr, 7/20/2016

Album: ADIEU.
Artist: Logan Lynn
Score: A+

Logan Lynn’s ADIEU. is a victory for the broken bones and bruised hearts that support our heavy souls.  Impossibly, yet beautifully, ADIEU. makes no claims to anything other than a simple truth: Life is awful, until it’s not.

From the first sentence on the first track (I like it All The Time) Logan Lynn plants a flag of newfound, possibly tenuous independence, singing “Some like it rough, I like it all the time.”  The puzzle pieces that come into view as the album progresses reveal that “it” could be anything from love, pain, pleasure, criticism, praise or friendship.

Logan Lynn by Ray Gordon (2016) - 5ADIEU. is an enormous accomplishment in its ability to keep listeners guessing and re-guessing who Logan Lynn is, and where in this galaxy he comes from. In each track, the truth is always there, a scavenger hunt of feelings with constant payoffs — sometimes hidden on the surface, beneath the surface and so far below cold dark waters that you haven’t even noticed you’ve been dragged under and into his life.  After all, this is, an album about life; a life of suffering; a life of love lost; a life of love found; a life of confusion; a life identified as having value and reclaimed.

Logan’s lyrics are unequaled. They are his and his alone. To cover a Logan Lynn song would be identity theft. A heist. Grand larceny. Break me Down (the best song on the album) is so honest and truthful that with just one pass through the lyrics you feel like an intruder. A spy. A fly on a wet wall about to drop into a broken hearted lap and ruin what remains of what was once an incredible party.  The lyric “Tell me you love me and I’ll kill it with you in time” is such a powerful admission from a co-conspirator; both parties knowing full well their love cannot last, but begging for acknowledgement of what was once the greatest, most fulfilling, shared experience.

I advise you to walk blindly into this album and just sit still. Lynn does all the work for you. It’s his life’s work and it has taken him a few lifetimes to get here. Logan is a brave, brave artist. Read the rest of this entry »

Logan Lynn’s “ADIEU.” Featured as Red Star Pick in September Issue of Spain’s Mondo Sonoro Magazine

adieu-art-16

Big thanks to Spain’s Mondo Sonoro Magazine for choosing my new record ADIEU. as a red star top pick (alongside Frank Ocean’s Blond!!) in their September 2016 issue. 7 out of 10 stars!

They also posted my new video “Go There When You Want To Be Loved” alongside the web version of the review. Click HERE to check it out, or keep reading for the transcript of the review below the video.

From Mondo Sonoro:

“Estos no han sido unos buenos años para Logan Lynn. El estadounidense en un corto plazo de tiempo perdió a su chico y a su querido perro, y con esas ausencias en su vida los fantasmas de los trastornos mentales y el suicidio volvieron a acecharle. Aunque eso sí, lejos de decantarse por la autodestrucción, ha aprovechado estas vicisitudes para crear un álbum catártico en el que, sin tapujos, se desnuda como nunca con la pérdida del amor como principal leit motiv.

Aparcando su conocida faceta electrónica (aun habiendo números como “Way Out” o esa “Oh Lucifer” en la que vuelve a hacer gala de su compromiso con la comunidad LGTB) Lynn y su fiel colaborador Gino Mari tanto se dejan querer por el pop californiano (“Can You Get Me Off?”) como rinden pleitesía a sus admirados The Dandy Warhols (en “The One”) en un disco igual de bello que visceral.”

Logan Lynn Interview and “ADIEU” Album Review in New Noise Magazine This Month

IMG_0826

I was interviewed for a review of my new record ADIEU in New Noise Magazine this month. Their take? 90s College Rock meets Musical Theater. WHICH IS EXACTLY IT.

Also, “The whole thing is very jazz hands mental health crisis, frankly” is my new favorite thing I have ever said in the press.

Click HERE for the online version, or just keep reading below.

From New Noise Magazine: (8/23/2016)

IMG_0830“Logan Lynn Brings Back 90s College Rock on ADIEU”

It’s been four years since Portland, Oregon’s Logan Lynn last put out a full-length. Despite coming out with a wildly popular cover of Miley Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop” in 2013, his latest record is aligned much closer to 1990s college radio rock and classic theatrical rock—think more Queen and less Yes—than a contemporary party album.

“I think strong ‘90s college rock vibes are probably there by way of the strong ‘90s college rock vibes I loved and was raised on, and then intentionally nodding to on ADIEU.,” Lynn says, referring to the new LP. “But I think [collaborator and producer] Gino [Mari] and I both had pretty serious musical theater vibes happening as a constant throughout. There are moments on this record that feel really jaunty and bratty, and as we were recording them, I tried to keep this mental image of myself with a dancing cane, clicking my heels in the rain, and moving through these very serious themes with a spring in my step, front and center. The whole thing is very jazz-hands mental health crisis, frankly.”

So, ADIEU.—which will be self-released on Sept. 23—is definitely a bit different. Read the rest of this entry »

Babysue LMNOP Gives Logan Lynn’s “ADIEU” 5 Stars, Names Album Top Pick of the Month

16-babysue-272

Thanks to the kids over at Babysue.com LMNOP for choosing ADIEU as their Top Pick for new releases next month in the August issue!

Check out what they had to say HERE, or just keep reading below.

From BABYSUE LMNOP: (August 2016)

Logan Lynn – Adieu (Independently released CD/Vinyl, Pop)
Recommended: TOP PICK. (5 Stars)

Logan Lynn - Adieu - Front Cover - Artwork by Ian Ophelan“Logan Lynn is an intelligent, motivated, multi-talented, unique fellow who has bitten off a huge chunk here. Any underground pop artist who releases an album that’s over an hour long is really taking chances. But in this case, the results are wonderfully entertaining and engaging. In other words, Adieu is a total…SUCCESS. This lengthy album features songs that are, admittedly, probably too smart for the average casual listener. But the delivery is so straightforward and genuine that you can’t help but enjoy yourself…even if the topics are sometimes heavy and intense. Although there are hundreds upon hundreds of possible reference points and influences in these tracks, in the end it’s difficult to come up with any specific comparison because Lynn seems to be driven by the pure motivation to create and express himself. Usually albums that delve into personal redemption and struggles are self-indulgent and tedious. That is not the case here. Logan writes songs that are ultimately catchy and friendly, and they make you want to immediately hear them again…and again. We like everything about this album. Great songs, great vocals, super intelligent lyrics, and arrangements that are a perfect fit for each track. This guy has really hit the bull’s eye here, at least for fans of underground pop. Folks into the phony processed cheese pop sound of the twenty-first century may be puzzled by this stuff because it’s not simple and easily digested. But folks who enjoy hearing music that exists on a multitude of levels will find themselves in…heaven. Killer tracks include ‘I Like It All The Time’, ‘I Am Like A Dog Now’, ‘Way Out’, and ‘Let’s Go Home’.”

Logan Lynn on Video Vriday at The Portland Mercury (2013)

Hometown love today from The Portland Mercury, who included my new video “Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks” in this week’s “Video Vriday!” weekly wrap-up! Check it out HERE or keep reading below the video:

From The Portland Mercury: (11/1/2013)

Logan Lynn released his new Halloween-y video this week; ‘Tramps Stamps and Birthmarks’ is a mysterious psychosexual clip made by Hippodrome Films. Lynn recorded the dark-tinged dance track with Spencer Lee Carroll (LackLustre), and Lynn says, “The horror of the video is meant to be a metaphor for the horrors of being trapped in our individual histories.”
