Logan Lynn Working On New Single With Indie Electropop Godfather Styrofoam

Logan Lynn in Studio with Styrofoam (2013)

I am so excited I can barely contain myself, so I’ve decided not to. The big news today is that I am home from tour and am preparing to get back in the studio to work on a new single with one of my all-time musical heroes (and Godfather of the indie electropop genre) Belgian Producer Arne Van Petegem (aka Styrofoam)!

He has worked with Ben Gibbard (Death Cab For Cutie/The Postal Service), Mum, Jimmy Eat World and a handful of other super talented folks previously, so…I am really honored that he wrote a song for me and that we are finally going to work together on something original!

Pretty fun, right? I’ll be sure and let you know more as this unfolds, but HELL YES for now!

NEW LOGAN LYNN VIDEO PREMIERS IN THE UK! FEATURE STORY AT GT MAGAZINE TODAY!

My new video “Quickly As We Pass” premiers in the UK this week and GT Magazine (the UK’s largest glossy GLBT Magazine) had some lovely stuff to say about me (and the video) today!

From GT Magazine (3/21/2011):

“Logan Lynn’s music rides a bright green fixie bike through the same non-prescription specs and skinny jeans hipster soundscape as the likes of Death Cab For Cutie and Owl City; Except he’s not as whinily self-deprecating as Death Cab, and not as much of a twat as that guy from Owl City. Relaxed synths and deliciously soothing vocals bring to mind perhaps a laid back bar in Amsterdam that’s too cool to have a name but has an artsy clientele who wear their hair in dreadlocks and pretend they’re too poor for the designer clothes on their backs.

We want to say Logan Lynn’s music falls under the “chill” genre, but we’re not from the sixties or wearing tie-dye. Instead, suffice to say it slots into a new and inventive sub-category of electronica. Maybe we can come up with our own name for it. Suburb Chic? Ironic Synth? Aural Candourocity? Actually we don’t know, we’re just saying words now to be honest.

Either way the lovely gay synthmaster Mr Lynn is so fond of us here at GT we’ve been blessed with the honour of being the first to broadcast the video for his new single, Quickly As We Pass. In fact it’s the world premiere. We get a little thrill from saying that, we feel like we should get that man who announces The X Factor contestants to read it out for us. Anyway the video features a cityscape populated by a charismatic collection of cardboard cut-outs. They position themselves in various compromising scenarios, much to the confusion of bemused pedestrians and we love it, we think it’s somewhere between a mobile phone commercial and a Banksy art film. In a good way, obviously.

And with MTV and Logo already interested it’s set to be a big ‘un, so braid you hair, take a cycle ride to your nearest too-cool-for-school bar, sit back with your organic cocktail, and enjoy.”

REMIXER SPOTLIGHT: STYROFOAM + LOGAN LYNN

Styrofoam (2009)

Styrofoam
Logan Lynn: “Bleed Him Out (Styrofoam Remix)” from the “Blood In The Water” Remix EP Collection…AVAILABLE ONLY THROUGH THIS SITE HERE and ONLY IF YOU PICK UP “FROM PILLAR TO POST” NOW DURING THE PRE-RELEASE!

The godfather of my genre and one of my all-time musical HEROES, Belgium Electropop Genius Arne Van Pategem-aka “Styrofoam”- has served as inspiration for “Death Cab For Cutie” frontman Ben Gibbard’s side project “The Postal Service” (see The Postal Service’s Top Friends on Myspace) and he certainly has done the same for me since I first heard his record “I’m What’s There To Show Something’s Missing” in 2003.

The fact that this guy likes my music means the world to me, and getting him actually working with one of my songs for the remix project has meant even more. You are gonna go crazy when you hear what he did to “Bleed Him Out”. It’s amazing…and coming at you on Volume 3 in November!
