Dudes: There will inevitably come a time when you’ve riled your girlfriend and find yourself racking your brain for some sort of grand gesture to set things straight. Before you reach for the boombox and your Peter Gabriel CD, try something a little subtler and give Michael Logen a spin. Logen’s music is the sort of dreamy folk-pop that lends itself to quiet romantic interludes. With his lightly husky falsetto, the Nashville songwriter paints pretty pictures of adoration; i.e. wishing he could rearrange the rain so as not to interfere with his lady’s ‘do. Now that’s the kind of thinking that will get you back in a girl’s good graces. Logen’s compositions are far from formulaic, but they do have certain touchstones in common: low, keening string sections, dreamy, gauzy guitar waltzes and coasting melodies. Sometimes the surest way to the heart isn’t the most epic. Restraint can be a powerful romancer, too.
