PORTLAND ELECTROFOLK ACT "CARS AND TRAINS" HAS JOINED UP WITH ME TO TRANSFORM MY LIVE SHOW! WE ARE DEBUTING THE NEW LINEUP AT MY MFNW SHOWCASE!!!

Cars and Trains and Logan Lynn

That’s right, folks…TOTAL overhaul on the LL live show. Tom Filepp (aka “Cars and Trains”) has linked up with me and taken over the musical end of my show. I’ll still be behind the mic, but instead of Carlos DJ-ing alongside, you will now see Tom doing his glitch-loop live drum pad spectacle and running the laptop(s).

We’ve been putting a LOT of work into the new setup and are looking forward to sharing the new diggz with all of you at my Musicfest Northwest showcase in Portland next month! (9/18/09, East End – 203 SE Grand, Portland)

Now…For some background on “Cars and Trains” (in case you haven’t already heard):

ABOUT “CARS AND TRAINS”:

cars & trains albums consist of handfuls of microscopic crafted worlds, shaped with tiny precision. Layers of decaying feedback, sparse glockenspiel and tape samples weave a dark and dense tapestry of sound while deep brooding vocals sit atop songs with deceptive timing, subtle electronic stutters, and thunderous and organic drumming. Banjo driven four to the floor stompers yield to velvety acoustic guitar and spacious instrumentals laden with sampled americana.

Tom Filepp evokes early Morr Music releases by bands like Tarwater, intersecting with folk-oriented electronic groups like Tunng. Found sound and distorted tape samples create urban lullaby landscapes. Undaunted, meloncholic drums and timid textures are reminicent of cloudDEAD or Tujiko Noriko, sitting atop an eclectic songwriting sensibility that brings The Microphones to mind.

Filepp translates his recordings to the stage with a unique solo set, energetically looping found-sounds and live electronic drumming with layers of vocal harmonies, viola, glockenspiel, trumpet, synthesizer, and melodica. All the while keeping an intense and engaging dynamic going, he weaves his songs into a captivating near-non-stop medley that is ever-changing and unique, no two shows being quite the same.

He also runs Circle Into Square, an artist run label and magazine, the entire site and label created from scratch as a means for artists to directly release their music and artwork with cutting edge resources, and to help adapt to the constantly changing music industry. Circle Into Square’s roster includes artists like Boy In Static, ID & Sleeper, Skating Club, BRE’R, The Harvey Girls, and cars & trains. (http://www.circleintosquare.com)
