Following Portland's gay singer-songwriter Logan Lynn's 2010 critically acclaimed record, I Killed Tomorrow Yesterday, and his 2009 award-winning album, From Pillar To Post, comes Lynn's latest work, Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks.
His latest single "Hologram" off the new album is a wonderfully mellow, soft electro-pop number about questioning one's action after being unnoticed and realizing it's caused you to be hollow.
The video helps set the tone of the song as we see a gay couple wake up together, with one of the two men not returning the affection of the other. We follow the man's morning, as he continues to go unnoticed by his lover. Throughout his day he phases into a hologram due to other's neglect or negativity around him--including being broken up with via text! However, it all changes for the poor sap when he arrives to a party, where Lynn is finally present in the video singing. Watch the video below:
Released in December, TrampStampsandBirthmarks comes after Lynn's extended break from music, where he worked full time for LGBT rights at Portland's Q Center--which also received proceeds from his 2010 album.
In the summer when Lynn released the first track off the new album, "Turn Me Out," he told The Huffington Post that he returned to music after meeting a man that changed his life, and he just started writing again.
Lynn said: "Almost as soon as I rejected the chase and stress of [the industry], opportunities started falling out of the sky and into my lap. Ultimately, I just couldn't pass up working with the people I am working with right now."
Lynn also noted that he would continue his activism work even if his schedule will get complicated.
Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks is available on iTunes and Amazon
