LOGAN LYNN’S “FEED ME TO THE WOLVES” IN KEXP SEATTLE’S BIG GAY RADIO PLAYLIST THIS WEEK!

In the spirit of Gay Pride week, KEXP Seattle (otherwise known as the coolest radio station in all the land) has released their annual “Weird At My School: Big Gay Playlist” and my song “Feed Me To The Wolves” (the “From Pillar To Post” version from 2009) is song 10, just between Ships: “Up and Down” and The Hidden Cameras: “Underage (Holy Fuck Remix).

Neat gay stuff, huh? Check it out HERE.

DUDE, 2009: YOU SUCK, BRO!!!

Logan Lynn (2009)

OK, so…the title of this post is a bit dramatic and unfair. 2009 actually brought with it some really amazing things. My new record “From Pillar To Post” was released and was received better than my little brain could have imagined…First by the press, then by all of you guys. It’s been really great to finally get to share where I’ve been since 2007 with you after going into hiding shortly after I got signed with “Beat The World”. Thanks so much for listening, for helping to spread the word about my tunes, and for reminding me constantly why it is that I write songs in the first place.

On the flipside to all of this professional joy, the past year has been quite a journey for me personally. 2009 was the first year since 1994 where no Alcohol or Cocaine entered my body. Like…NONE. I got clean in the beginning of 2008, so it was tainted by a couple of months of freebasing and I didn’t quit drinking until December of ’08…but this year was clean, start to finish. I’m nearing the 2 year anniversary of my last journey to cracked-out partytown…I know for normal people that doesn’t seem like a very big deal, but for me and for anyone who has ever known or loved me, it’s noteworthy. I’m finally at a point with the getting well that it’s not such a constant struggle to function. All I really have to say about that is…FUCK YES!!! FINALLY!!!!!

At this point, I have torn down every part of my old life and am about to start over. After over 6 years of moving in one direction together, my partner and I split up in July and I’ve spent much of the past 6 months since just regrouping, catching my breath, mourning the loss of that companionship (and that of one of my dogs, Spike, who went to live with “other dad” when he left), and making a new plan. I made decisions this year that kicked me WAY out of my comfort zone and have left me feeling vulnerable and beyond frightened at times, but I’ve managed to navigate through and have finally hit the light at the end of the dark tunnel. I feel great sorrow for this loss in my life, and it is a neon example of how some things which I broke when I was high are just unfixable, no matter how hard anyone tries. I wish him nothing but the greatest happiness and hope the new year brings peace and healing for both of our sad, broken hearts.

That same week in July I went to stay with my Mom and Dad in the Oregon desert. We spent the first part of the week in a raw emotional state, talking out old festering wounds and repairing cracks in the foundation of our family unit that had been made long ago. We cried for the better part of the week, but managed to come back together at some point while I was there. That time with them is the most beautiful experience I’ve had in my life so far and things are forever changed as a result of those moments together.

I’ve made a lot of new friends this year and am really excited to be starting a new decade this week with all of you in tow. I feel light again, like things are clearing up. I am determined to bring my personal life up to speed with my professional life this year…gonna make some happy stuff happen!!!

🙂

HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYBODY!!! See you on the 7th at Doug Fir in Portland! It’s gonna be a really good show. “Cars & Trains” and “The Gentry” rule the skool.

You can read the full transcript from the interview below as well.

Out Magazine, December/January (2009)

From “Out” Magazine:

“NEED TO KNOW: LOGAN LYNN — The singer chats about his new album, feuding with Jeffree Star, and “putting the discomfort back in disco.” Plus: see his new video, “Bottom Your Way to the Top.”

Logan Lynn’s emo-disco-pop blend has already made him a hit with gay guys who like to hear their lives — from the highs to the lows — set to music. His ability to capture melancholy and melody is really no surprise, given that the grandmother who taught him about music also taught a similarly emotional man, Johnny Cash. We sat down with Lynn to find out about “bottoming his way to the top,” feuding with Jeffree Star, and just what “putting the discomfort in disco” actually means.

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.”
