AMAZING REVIEW OF "FROM PILLAR TO POST" FROM PORTLAND NEWSWEEKLY "JUST OUT" THIS WEEK! CHECK IT OUT BELOW!

Logan Lynn (2009)

Lots of love from the hometown this week. In preparation for the big listening party my label is throwing me this weekend, Portland Newsweekly “Just Out” did a post about the party which you can read HERE. The writer, Ryan J. Prado, also included their official review of my new record which you can read below.

From “Just Out” (11/20/09)

“Where Logan Lynn excels on his debut Beat the World full-length, From Pillar to Post, is not as readily accessible as the genre in which his music resides might allude to. Were it simply a raved-up dissertation concerning the trappings of the emo generation (a term Lynn actually embraces), it might be dubbed a hybrid anomaly, pitting two oft-divided musical milieus into one, shattering a once-proverbial mold. But Pillar… does more than that. Opener “Feed Me to the Wolves” writhes with industrial-rock melancholia, with Lynn’s lethargic monotone repeating, “I won’t stop until I find a way to make you stay.”

Dance jams like “Alone Together” offer respite from the gloom, but only if you aren’t paying attention — like adding layers to a wedding cake, Lynn adds frighteningly catchy minor chord sediments to already shaky bedrock. When you reach the album’s finale — among the busy, ambient blips on “The Dotted Line” — Lynn bellows robotically the line, “It’s so hard to say goodbye.” He’s right; listening to Pillar… poses an awfully disheartening conundrum: Should I keep listening to such personal expression? And just as a savage stares at the sun despite the spots, you will listen to Lynn despite the sadness.”
