LOGAN LYNN’S NEW RECORD “I KILLED TOMORROW YESTERDAY” FEATURED ON OREGON MUSIC NEWS + MORE THIS WEEK!

It’s been really touching this week since announcing my upcoming hiatus to see how many people, venues, record stores and press outlets have felt that my taking a break from the stage is newsworthy (Just Out, Willamette Week, KZME FM Radio & Oregon Music News to name a few). Makes a boy feel really loved during a rather slippery, uneasy time, so…thanks for that.

In addition to the announcement of my change of plans last week on their site which you can read HERE, OMN (Oregon Music News) picked up on my swan song today and has it featured in a story titled “Logan Lynn Releases Final Album Via YouTube“. Click HERE to redirect or keep reading below.

From Oregon Music News: (8/3/2010)

“While Logan Lynn may have decided to call it quits last week, he’s at least also decided that “The last hoorah may as well have a soundtrack, right?”

Releasing his final album as YouTube playlist, “I Killed Tomorrow Yesterday” features lyrics and vocals from Lynn with music and programming by Bryan Cecil. The album is Read the rest of this entry »

MY NEW VIDEO "WRITE IT ON MY LEFT ARM" IS POSTED ON WILLAMETTE WEEK'S "LOCAL CUT" THIS MORNING!

Logan Lynn (2009)

Read the full post and watch the video HERE

…and here’s a snippet to tide you over:

From “Local Cut”:

“Logan Lynn’s glossy electro-popping album From Pillar to Post has been on the horizon for a while, since initial excitement over signing to the Dandy Warhols’ label, Beat the World. With just over a week until it’s offered up on his website, Lynn’s sharing the new video to Write It On My Left Arm.

The vast-n-sparse setting kinda suits the more minimal, ambient pulse of this vocoded offering. We’ve also got a gas-masked man in a bee-keeper suit wandering around a post-apocalyptic landscape with a suitcase. Interpretations welcome?”

"FROM PILLAR TO POST" IS THE TOP STORY ON WILLAMETTE WEEK'S "LOCAL CUT" TODAY!!!

From Willamette Week’s “Local Cut” Music Blog:

“It has been about 15 months since it was announced that Logan Lynn would sign to the Dandy Warhols’ Beat the World label. A potential big move for both Lynn and the Dandies, we felt. Well, yesterday the Portland electro-pop artist released the first sneak previews over on his MySpace page (which is where these things generally happen), and at his own website, where you can listen in hi-fi. The album, From Pillar to Post, should see the light of day in a few short months.”

“The new tunes have some Postal Service steez (not a bad thing…that was a working formula and no one ever really followed up on it, you know?), and sound fittingly detailed for having gestated in the Odditorium for two years. We’re looking forward to hearing the whole enchilada. Sorry, I’m in Texas. I have Mexican food on the brain.”

DING! LOGAN LYNN JOINS THE DANDY’S NEW LABEL!

It’s easy to figure why most music critics—even, especially ‘community’ obsessed northwest writers (our own very much included)—trash the Dandy Warhols. They specialize in infectious, lyrically-available, immediately-explicable pop rendering the critic’s job rather beside the point. They freely admit the quality of drugs and sex partners available to rock stars to be perks of the job. Most damning, they’re a singles band. Had they the good sense to put out a dozen 45s in 1967 and record a series of majestically-condescending interviews to fawning magazines before well-timed overdoses, we’d all be lighting candles (or, likely, other things) upon Taylor-Taylor Street each year.

As is, despite the mountain of press CTT* spends detailing the glories of his hometown to the international press, they are locally considered from Portland but not of Portland. Too careerist (which makes no sense). Too haughty (ever talk up Janet Weiss?). Too attractive (perhaps, but their unending advertisement for NW glam have buffered the ranks). Too…happy? Confident in their powers? Unabashed in their desire to change the town, or, at least, their little quarter, towards a well-articulated vision of…I know, I know, but there’s no other phrase…urban Bohemia? Put simply, they’ve never sought to Keep Portland Weird or indulge a Malkmusian sense of artist-in-residence at riverside village. The mission statement’s been there from the beginning, but, now, the Dandy’s have built their compound, imported allies, and started a label.

Following themselves and next week’s concert openers the Upside Down, Logan Lynn becomes the third artist to be signed to Beat The World Records. A dayglo electro performer, Lynn’s ecstatic intelligence and untempered glee through two EPs and LOGO-rotated videos resembles a sweaty Postal Service capable of inelegant emotions or The Pet Shop Boys were they sorta hot and born to the civil unions generation—”Ring Around,” for an artist whose press protests (wrongly) he “brings the ‘mo back to emo,” tackles proposals absent politics. CTT’s set to produce his debut full-length From Pillar To Post (and, we hope, counsel against Lynn’s cap choices) early next year and, one expects, set dancefloors thumping worldwide.
