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.”

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.

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