Neophile: Logan Lynn, From Pillar to Post

April 16, 2009

I’ve been listening to an early copy of Logan Lynn‘s new album, From Pillar to Post, for a few weeks now, and it’s been gradually infiltrating itself into my brain. The Portland-based Lynn describes his music as ‘electro-pop’, but that carries connotations that are a little too saccharine.  The gentle tenor vocals over a background of electronica are like the smooth, reflective surfaces of mirror shards, belying the razor-sharp edges of the complex song structures, syncopation, and bleak lyrics—as his bio puts it, putting the ‘disco’ back into ‘discomfort.’ This album, his third full-length, is on the Dandy Warhols‘ label, Beat the World Records. I don’t know if there’s a release date set for it, but here’s a couple of tracks to whet your appetite in the interim. More on Logan Lynn at his website or on Myspace.

MP3: Logan Lynn – Feed Me to the Wolves
