Logan Lynn on Video Vriday at The Portland Mercury (2013)

Hometown love today from The Portland Mercury, who included my new video “Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks” in this week’s “Video Vriday!” weekly wrap-up! Check it out HERE or keep reading below the video:

From The Portland Mercury: (11/1/2013)

Logan Lynn released his new Halloween-y video this week; ‘Tramps Stamps and Birthmarks’ is a mysterious psychosexual clip made by Hippodrome Films. Lynn recorded the dark-tinged dance track with Spencer Lee Carroll (LackLustre), and Lynn says, “The horror of the video is meant to be a metaphor for the horrors of being trapped in our individual histories.”

Animotion Collaboration on Upcoming Logan Lynn Single!

Exciting news! I’m going into the studio next week with Bill Wadhams, lead singer of Animotion, to re-record vocals for the Animotion remake of my song “Turn Me Out“. The track will be the flipside to my upcoming single “Do You Want Me Or Not?“, out September 25th. This new single is the 2nd pre-release from my new record, “Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks“, coming December 4th.

I’ve loved Animotion since I was a kid, so working with them on this is really special. Click on the picture below to go to their website and watch the video for their song “Obsession” below that!

LOGAN LYNN INTERVIEWED BY GERMAN QUEER MUSIC + POLITICS BLOG, CATCH FIRE! FREE MP3 DOWNLOAD!

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 »

"FEED ME TO THE WOLVES" PICKED AS ONE OF THE "TOP 50 SONGS OF 2009" BY THE "32 FT/SECOND" MUSIC NEWS BLOG!

Logan Lynn (2009)

The “32 Feet Per Second” Music, MP3 & News Blog put out their picks for the “Top 50 Songs of 2009” this week and my new record, “From Pillar To Post” made the list in the #34 position. You can check it out HERE, or just below.

From “32 Feet Per Second” (12/22/2009)

“#34 — Logan Lynn: “Feed Me To The Wolves” — We heard a lot of glossy, synth pop/rock this year. Logan Lynn, a label-mate of The Dandy Warhols, managed to separate himself from the pack. “Feed Me To The Wolves” isn’t just a shimmering, urgent bit of post-Postal Service electro-pop. It builds into an architectural elevation with bright keyboards clashing with double-tap drums. The stakes are high as Lynn freely admits, “You can feed me to the wolves if I make one mistake.” He doesn’t specify who these predators are, but we can assume that anyone who spent time in the music industry knows, the wolves are always at the door.”

Nice one, right? WOOT!
