From New York Magazine, Vulture: (9/18/2013)

“We Can’t Stop With These ‘We Can’t Stop’ Covers – And Why Should We? Arguably the track that would have been 2013’s Song of Summer were it not for “Blurred Lines,” Miley Cyrus’s “We Can’t Stop” has managed to linger far beyond the whole twerking thing that initially captured popular attention. How do we know this? Aside from being stuck in our heads since its release and being played at every summer wedding we went to, the song has also produced several very good covers. Doo-wop ones, reggae ones, and ones that really get into the heart of the matter. Neon Hitch’s brass-filled reggae cover, Logan Lynn’s dreamy, guitar-heavy version, Scott Bradlee & Postmodern Jukebox’s doo-wop version and Bastille’s incredible cover, which mashes up “We Can’t Stop” with Miley’s father Billy Ray’s “Achy Breaky Heart” to create a narrative of a rebellious child and her concerned father.”

Logan Lynn Featured on SugarBang This Week

Los Angeles entertainment & pop culture website SugarBang.com has featured my “We Can’t Stop” cover today on their site.

Check it out HERE.

From SugarBang: (9/19/2013)

“Portland based musician Logan Lynn has released a great cover of “We Can’t Stop” from Miley Cyrus. Produced by Gino Mari, who was also responsible for producing Lynn’s 2012 album ‘TRAMP STAMPS AND BIRTHMARKS’ which we raved about, the cover is completely different from the original. When I first heard this cover, my first thought was, if The O.C. was still on air, this would have been a perfect fit. I really liked the stripped down and raw rendition of the song. Also being sung by a proud and openly gay singer, I felt that the lyrics hit on a deeper level of openess and acceptance. Here’s what Logan had to say about the song and Miley’s VMAs performance: I thought what Miley did on the VMAs was hilarious. I mean…Robin Thicke is a misogynistic pig, 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?

Yeah, we agree. Ok, now onto the song! Oh did we tell you that it’s also available as a free download? Oh Logan, you’re such giver.”

“Logan Lynn Covers Miley Cyrus’ ‘We Can’t Stop’ (VIDEO)”

Portland-based openly gay musician Logan Lynn is known for his dance and electronic music, but lately his sound has taken a different direction with his latest single, “Everything You Touch Turns To Gold“.

Now he’s released a free download of his cover of Miley Cyrus’ hit single, “We Can’t Stop” that continues his foray into a bold new direction.

Lynn has been releasing music since 2000. He gained national recognition when his music and videos were played on Logo TV, and while he may be known for his electro-emo music, on his website, he speaks about his new sound and breaking away from the music for which he’s historically been known:

‘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.’

So if Cyrus’ song has grown a bit stale after hearing it played everywhere for the past few months, then check out Lynn’s version to get a “warmer,” different take on this mammoth hit.”

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?!
