Logan Lynn – Nursed in Darkness: KOORTWAH Wants to Be Blood Brothers

Logan Lynn Interview with KOORTWAH (2013)

(Originally Published on The Huffington Post on 8/8/13)

With a new video and EP out and plans for much more in the works, 2013 is shaping up to be a busy year for NYC’s black-magic electropopper KOORTWAH. I caught up with him this week to talk about the video for his new single “forty five” (below), how body fluids inform his artistic process, what it means to be a faceless artist in the age of manufactured celebrity, and much more.

(The interview begins after the video. WARNING: The video contains some graphic content. Watch at your own discretion.)

Logan Lynn: Hello, sir. Thanks for chatting with me today. I know you recently removed your face from your artistic identity. Why did you make this decision?

KOORTWAH: I suppose that I’m concerned with, among other things, the difference between personal fame and professional recognition. It’s not so much about hiding my identity, though, as it is about creating a new one. As an artist, I feel that it’s my job to encourage people to ask questions, as opposed to providing them with answers. A mask is really just another question. Read the rest of this entry »

Logan Lynn Interviews Portland Band Magic Mouth on Huffington Post (2013)

(Originally Published on The Huffington Post on 7/26/13)

On the heels of a tour with fellow hometown heroes Gossip, Portland’s Magic Mouth is about to release their new EP Devil May Care on August 15. This record is the follow-up to their 2012 debut Believer EP, and will be available in limited edition 12′ 33RPM format and digital download from Fast Weapons Records (the label owned and operated by Gossip‘s Nathan “Brace Paine” Howdeshell).

I met up with Peter, Ana, Brendan and Chanticleer — (aka Magic Mouth) over at their practice space to interview them about the new record, their time on the road with Gossip, their take on the Portland music scene and more. Read our chat just below.

Logan Lynn: Where did the name Magic Mouth come from?

Chanticleer: It’s about a boy who always gets what he wants. (Smiles)

Logan: (Laughs) Well, that makes sense. For a person who hasn’t heard your music, how would you describe your sound?

Chanticleer: I feel like the core is just roots music. We all have a love and appreciation for Read the rest of this entry »

WATCH: Teaser Trailer for Accidental Bear’s Queer Music Summer Benefit Tour Documentary (VIDEO)

Logan Lynn LIVE in Portland - Mississippi Studios - July 11th 2013 - Photo by Wayne Bund Photography

A lovely and talented filmmaker and performance artist named Run Shayo has been flying all over the United States with us every step of the way this summer for our tour, capturing the good moments (and the ugly ones) as we go. He is making a documentary about our experience together on this queer music tour and it is going to be J.U.I.C.Y. when it’s all said and done. I trust this man’s vision wholeheartedly, and if you don’t already know his work, you soon will.

We are flying to New York City tonight for the grand finale at Webster Hall this Friday night. See you there!

Here’s a teaser trailer for the tour (and the film) by Run Shayo:

Tickets For The Accidental Bear Summer Benefit Tour For LGBTQ Mental Health Services Go On Sale May 1st! Sponsorship Opportunities Are Still Available. Get Involved With The Charity Here Now!

Accidental Bear Summer Benefit Tour for LGBTQ Mental Health Services and Suicide Prevention (2013) Logan Lynn

Oh haaaaay world! Tickets for the Accidental Bear Queer Music Summer Tour Benefit For LGBTQ Mental Health Services & Suicide Prevention with Logan Lynn, Big Dipper, Conquistador, Darling Gunsel, and Rica Shay go on sale May 1st.

The Kickstarter raised a portion of money to make this tour happen, but we are still looking for sponsors to help us cover expenses so we can play these shows and donate the proceeds to Ali Forney Center (NYC), Pride Foundation (Seattle), Q Center (PDX), LA Gay & Lesbian Center, and Stonewall Project (SF). Putting together a 5-band tour takes a bit of cash…but nowhere near as much cash as the tour stands to raise for these vital community resources this summer!

If you are an individual, business, corporation, or organization and you are interested in showing your support of the LGBTQ community, a great way to do that is to become a sponsor of this tour! Click HERE to download the official sponsorship packet. We are especially needing travel and accommodations sponsors, but welcome anyone who would like to get involved in this part of the charity. Additionally, we realize not everyone can donate money or services, but everyone can help us spread the word. Share this post if you feel moved to contribute, friends!
