For those of you who missed our 2014 Mo Wave showcase, I’m sorry! It was really fun. Wish you could have been there with us. Here are a few clips of me and my wild band boys Gino Mari (on guitar/backup vocals) and AC (on drums) getting down to “Turn Me Out”, a brand new song called “Break Me Down” from my forthcoming 2015 record, and “Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks” LIVE at Chop Suey as we open Day 3 of this year’s festival.

“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?!

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.

Logan Lynn – Nursed in Darkness: KOORTWAH Wants to Be Blood Brothers

Logan Lynn Interview with KOORTWAH (2013)

(Originally Published on The Huffington Post on 8/8/13)

With a new video and EP out and plans for much more in the works, 2013 is shaping up to be a busy year for NYC’s black-magic electropopper KOORTWAH. I caught up with him this week to talk about the video for his new single “forty five” (below), how body fluids inform his artistic process, what it means to be a faceless artist in the age of manufactured celebrity, and much more.

(The interview begins after the video. WARNING: The video contains some graphic content. Watch at your own discretion.)

Logan Lynn: Hello, sir. Thanks for chatting with me today. I know you recently removed your face from your artistic identity. Why did you make this decision?

KOORTWAH: I suppose that I’m concerned with, among other things, the difference between personal fame and professional recognition. It’s not so much about hiding my identity, though, as it is about creating a new one. As an artist, I feel that it’s my job to encourage people to ask questions, as opposed to providing them with answers. A mask is really just another question. Read the rest of this entry »
