Logan Lynn’s “Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks” Reviewed in July Issue of Mondo Sonoro Magazine (SPAIN)

Logan Lynn in Mondo Sonoro

My new record “Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks” is reviewed in the July 2013 print issue of Spain’s Mondo Sonoro Magazine! They gave it 3 1/2 stars (out of 5), which means a B+. The star rating is about as much as I can read, but if you are Spanish-speaking, click on the July cover or just keep reading below for the review.

Thank you, Mondo Sonoro! I dig that you dig the record.



From Mondo Sonoro (July 2013 Issue):

“Disco De Logan Lynn: Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks – Activista de la comunidad LGBT, periodista y todo lo que le echen por delante, Logan Lynn ha ido virando su género hacia el hedonismo sin frenos del pop sintético de las pistas de baile desde que debutara en lo musical en 1998 rindiendo pleitesía a la indietrónica. Aunque, eso sí, sin hacerle ascos a nada dentro de ese género madre, ya que a lo largo de “Tramp Stamps And Birthmarks” se manifiestan en buena medida los tropicalismos indie a los que nos tiene acostumbrados Kitsuné (“The Ghost Of Someone Else”), la sombra de los siempre a reivindicar Silver Columns (“Loud Enough”), unos The Postal Service hipotéticamente desbocados por el techno pop (“Hologram”, una de las mejores del lote) y hits potenciales que podrían haber sonado perfectamente en boca de Frankmusik (“Radio Silent”). La nueva criatura de Lynn no renueva su sonido más reciente, pero nos deja un buen puñado de momentos perfectos para quemar calorías bailando antes de que se reserve dos últimos números que rebajan drásticamente la adrenalina del conjunto.”


The reaction to my new record in the press has been really great so far. Lots of love from Europe again this time around! The latest installment is an interview I did with German Queer music and politics blog CATCH FIRE! They went live with it today alongside a free MP3 download of “Smoke Rings” (song 2 on “I Killed Tomorrow Yesterday“). You can read it via their site HERE or just keep reading below for the full transcript.

From CATCH FIRE: (11/2/2010)

After going on US tour this summer, Logan Lynn, the winner of last year’s Queer Video Music Award, has announced in August that he would be taking an extended break from the music industry and leave “Beat The World Records”, a label founded and led by the Dandy Warhols. Instead he released his fourth record “I Killed Tomorrow Yesterday”, the follow-up to “From Pillar To Post” independently in August, donating 100% of his profits to Portland’s Q Center where he is currently working. What led the songwriter to all these decisions and how they influenced his life he explains in an interview I did with him via email during the last two weeks. I also posted “Smoke Rings”, another track from “I Killed Tomorrow Yesterday” right below this introduction – the track is the perfect background music for the following text. A second free song from the album called “Things Are Looking Up” can be found in one of October’s Music Tickers.


Catch Fire:
What interests me first of all is the question if you’d consider your new album “I Killed Tomorrow Yesterday” a “conceptual album”. To me especially compared to the stuff you’ve done before it seems very consistent, as if the decision to do this kind of eighties-pop-influenced dance music may have been a very concious decision.

Logan Lynn: Yes, both the producer Bryan Cecil and I wanted to make a dance record. We had worked together on my cover of “The Last High” by The Dandy Warhols from January of this year. The idea of doing some vintage disco dancepop take on that song was deliberate and we wrote “I Killed Tomorrow Yesterday” at the same time so we were already planted in 80’s dance party mode. Obviously I’m a child of the 80’s and 90’s and that comes out in what I listen to and what I create. Bryan wanted it to be authentic, like a time machine and I wanted it to sound like what I grew up imagining my records would sound like someday.

We ended up doing exactly that so it seemed like a perfect time to step away for awhile. The record is about me being totally disillusioned and leaving. Not sure if life imitated art or vice versa…but I’m much, MUCH happier ever since I did the whole career suicide bit in August. The overall concept was to have a big, spectacular going away party. “Fall Into New Arms” was chosen as the last track just in case it was literally the last song I ever put out. I’m not saying that it will be…but I could live with that.

Catch Fire: What exactly does “career suicide“ mean? What happend in August?

Logan Lynn: I spent the last 3 years signed to The Dandy Warhols owned and operated “Beat The World” records label and it ended up Read the rest of this entry »


The Electroqueers across the pond at EQ in the UK featured the video for my cover of The Dandy Warhols song “The Last High” on EQTV today! They dig it. You can watch the video and check out what they had to say by clicking HERE or just keep reading.

EQTV – Watch “The Last High” by Logan Lynn

From Electroqueer, UK: July 1st, 2010

“You know, I’ve been vaguely aware of Logan Lynn for years but I never had much of an appreciation for his music until I (watched) his video for a cover of The Dandy Warhols hit “The Last High” just now. Amazing stuff! I haven’t heard his album “From Pillar To Post” yet, but after watching this video – I am intrigued – even more…”
