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: 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 »

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:
