WATCH VIDEO OF LOGAN LYNN & THE GENTRY PERFORMING AT BLOW PONY “BASH BACK!” LAST SATURDAY NIGHT HERE!

Well, people…we did it again! Last Saturday night was the biggest Blow Pony ever. Thanks so much for coming out, y’all! My favorite part of the night was when Beth Ditto & Nathan “Brace Paine” Howdeshell (from Gossip) were dancing front and center during “Come Home”. Oh my God. Portland is my favorite.



For those of you who weren’t there (and for those of you who were, but couldn’t get past security to get upstairs for my set) below is a bit of what went down on stage with me and The Gentry.

Here are our opening 2 songs, “Smoke Rings” and “Bottom Your Way To The Top”. This was so fun.

…we went from there into “Come Home”…

…and “Write It On My Left Arm” (with a little bit of me preaching to the queers beforehand about telling all the gay hating fuckwads who think we should burn in hell for being ourselves to go screw)…

Big thanks to Airick and the Pony crew for having us play their Pride party and to Kaj-Anne Pepper, Jer Ber Jones, Christeene and all the resident Blow Pony DJs for being so cool and making things awesome with us! We had a great night.

WATCH THE VIDEO OF LOGAN LYNN & THE GENTRY PERFORMING "WRITE IT ON MY LEFT ARM" ON KGW NEWSCHANNEL 8 HERE!

In case you missed us playing the new version of “Write It On My Left Arm” LIVE on KGW Newschannel 8 last night on TV (via the show “Live at 7“) you can watch the video from the broadcast just below. Pretty fun!!!

Logan Lynn (2010)

My new record “From Pillar To Post” is featured and reviewed this month by leading Spanish Music Magazine “Mondosonoro“!!! So awesome. The print version is on shelves in Spain this month, so if you’re over yonder…pick it up! I have one on its way to me via International mail.

For the rest of you, to check out the digital version CLICK HERE.

Here’s what they had to say:

From “Mondosonoro” Magazine (2/23/2010)

“Cuenta el propio Logan Lynn que su carrera empezó gracias a entregar una copia de su mixtape “This Is Folk Techno” a la persona adecuada. Deeso hace ya una década, un tiempo excesivamente largo para no haber tenidonoticias de este artista de Portland. Aunque bien mirado, es una suerte haberle descubierto con su tercer largo, “From Pillar To Post”, un epidérmico tratado de electrónica inteligente y distinguidísima, de sonoridades emo en las formas pese a sucontenido. Lynn no es uno más. Sus canciones tienen alma, sus textos hieren ynos hacen tomar consciencia de la complejidad emocional del ser humano, delsome timiento en el sexo y en el amor, de una forma distinta de sentirse queridoo despreciado. Y eso es algo que consigue con buena parte de los mejores cortesdel disco. En “Feed Me To The Wolves” canta “échame a los lobos si cometo unerror/ córtame a trocitos cuando me porte mal”; en “Write It On My Left Arm” selamenta “no me mantengo de pie/ esta habitación se hace cada vez más pequeña/puedes escribirlo en mi corazón/ puedes escribirlo en mi brazo derecho y sialguien me encuentra habré dejado pistas en mi cuerpo”; en “Bleed Him Out” ledice a su pareja “hazme tu esclavo/ tapa mi boca y quémame con cigarrillo shasta que obedezca” y no hace falta apuntar mucho más sobre un tema que titula“Bottom Your Way To The Top”. Tras tres Ep’s de remezclas firmadas por artistascomo Styrofoam o Boys In Static, Lynn acaba de anunciar un nuevo single, unaversión de “The Last High” de The Dandy Warhols (dueños de Beat The World, disco gráfica que edita “From Pillar To Post”

LOGAN LYNN + BAD LIFE PLUS GADGETS FEATURED ON THE "BOOM BOOM CHIK" ELECTRONIC MUSIC BLOG!

Logan Lynn (2010)

One of the remixes from Volume 3 of my “Blood In The Water” Remix EP Collection got some attention from the “Boom Boom Chik” Electronic Music Blog this week! To check out all the nice stuff they had to say and have a listen, CLICK HERE.

Here’s a bit from the post to tide you over…

From “Boom Boom Chik”: (2/3/2010)

“New York based music collaborators Jean Goode and Teddy! of The Asteroid Belt are still doing their thing, this time having remixed Logan Lynn’s “Write it on My Left Arm” off of his 2009 release, From Pillar to Post. Lynn is a singer-songwriter from Portland, Oregon who delves in different genres ranging from folk to electronic. The remix is a wonderful listen; the musical growth of Jean Goode and Teddy are evident in the fluidity of the track, something that is made possible only when the instrumental arrangements are solid and complement the vocals (as is the case here). Upon hearing the track I thought of the ubiquitous Imogen Heap and the less well known Milosh, two artists who are pretty good to be associated with if you ask me.”

-Radio Morillo, “Boom Boom Chik”

Nice, huh? Go Jean and Teddy!!! Ink and Pixels, baby. Ink and Pixels!!!

I LOVE A GOOD NEW YEAR’S EVE COUNTDOWN, DON’T YOU???

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.
