I’m the featured guest this month on the BLCKSMTH blog‘s December Soundtrack. I helped Michael James Schneider put together the playlist, then we went all over Portland spreading some apocalyptic holiday cheer.

On the heels of a tour with fellow hometown heroes Gossip, Portland’s Magic Mouth is about to release their new EP Devil May Care on August 15. This record is the follow-up to their 2012 debut Believer EP, and will be available in limited edition 12′ 33RPM format and digital download from Fast Weapons Records (the label owned and operated by Gossip‘s Nathan “Brace Paine” Howdeshell).
I met up with Peter, Ana, Brendan and Chanticleer — (aka Magic Mouth) over at their practice space to interview them about the new record, their time on the road with Gossip, their take on the Portland music scene and more. Read our chat just below.

Logan Lynn: Where did the name Magic Mouth come from?
Chanticleer: It’s about a boy who always gets what he wants. (Smiles)
Logan: (Laughs) Well, that makes sense. For a person who hasn’t heard your music, how would you describe your sound?
Chanticleer: I feel like the core is just roots music. We all have a love and appreciation for Read the rest of this entry »Tweet

Well, Gino and I have just wrapped up the Pacific NW and East Coast legs of my summer tour with Big Dipper and Co. so I figured I would post some pictures! I will hold off on sharing all of the gritty details of what went down behind the scenes for now (gotta save something for the book), but I will say that we had a really great time performing for you all and we will definitely be back very soon! I am in love with Mississippi Studios and Chop Suey. You all are wonderful!!!
Photos from our NYC show at Webster Hall coming up later this week…

I’m back in Portland for a few days midway through our summer tour and figured I would tell you things about the first leg of shows!
The tour kicked-off in San Francisco at Beatbox on Friday night and was great. I heard after the show that one of my all-time musical heroes Bob Mould had asked the tour organizer the day before what time I was performing and then he came to the show! So awesome.
Of course, this also means that Bob got to see me knock both of my bottles of water off of a stool and onto the stage during a song, where they began pouring out into a rat’s nest of wires surrounding me. In an act of quick-thinking, fancy footwork, I repurposed my green LaCoste face towels (which Gino and I use to keep the sweat from blinding us on stage) and used one foot to mop it up while I sang the opening of our next song. It was pretty special. Here’s to not getting publicly electrocuted on stage in SF!
Here are some photos from that show:
On Sunday we played at Los Globos in Los Angeles and had a really special time with all of you there as well! I fucking LOVE LA.
Here are some photos from that show:
Thank you to Gino Mari and Michael Brillig for designing my live show and to Gino especially for being on the road with me and getting me from point A to point B every step of the way!
We’ll be in Portland on Thursday, Seattle on Sunday, and the grand finale in New York City on July 19th! See you again soon, California.

My new record “Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks” comes out on December 4th. This time around for the album art I worked with Portland photography/art direction duo Eric Sellers and Zaq Banton. The end result is posted here and you’ll be seeing more shots from this series over the coming weeks and months. I love what these two did. Check it out!
