His homemade debut, “Paper Plane Flight Recorder”, made its maiden flight in 2011. This year LogOut returns with his second album, “Little Things Buried In Concrete”, produced by Hristos Lainas.
This time LogOut attempts with his songs a gradual descending under the strict concrete surfaces of our cities and our faces. The excavation trip of “Little Things Buried In Concrete” begins at the exterior surface, where “everybody lives in malls” and “everybody loves each other” (“Newspapers”) and passes through layers of consumerism (“Global Love”) and city isolation (“For You”) slowly descending towards the innermost hidden layers (“Censored Title”) all the way to the final cathartic plea towards Concrete (“Hymn To Concrete”- …Come on concrete, rain all over me…), which leaves behind only a tape of repeated declarations of love. (“…love you, I love you, I love you, I…”)
The sound of “Little Things Buried In Concrete” will be a pleasant surprise to those who know LogOut from the bare ballads of “Paper Plane Flight Recorder”. The 10 new tracks were taken to the studio of Hristos Lainas where they were rebuilt with various ad hoc instrumentations and the contribution of guest musicians. The guitar and voice still have the leading roles but the acoustic atmosphere has given way to an electric sound. So the melodies and lyrics of LogOut have been charged with the intensity that was necessary for this album, while retaining the characteristic style of the artist. The mastering of the album took place in New York by Alan Douches.
“Little Things Buried In Concrete” is released in vinyl (including bonus cd) and digital album from Inner Ear.

He was introduced to us for the first time through the band The Place Within, while last year he begun to make solo live appearances using the technique of live-looping. LogOut’s debut album is entitled “Paper Plane Flight Recorder” and is ready for its maiden voyage. It is a series of twelve home recordings which he wrote and recorded himself, with the voice and classical guitar playing the key roles.
A few words about the paper plane flight recorders: Every day thousands of paper planes are created without any specific purpose. The course and duration of their flight is specified and the abrupt end, inevitable. Of course, unlike airplanes, the drop of a paper plane is nothing terrible, because this is just a plane made of paper. So theoretically, one loses nothing to try.
Many people would characterize such an occupation as futile. Usually, however, everybody shows a certain understanding, as they all more or less, have tasted the guilty pleasure of the same or another futile activity. One way or another, the truth is different: paper planes have their own flight recorders and all the elements of their flights are recorded, so every little detail is important. The paper plane flight recorders do not have a fixed format. When opened, they may contain anything that helps to describe the flight. Generally there should be a very serious reason for a paper plane flight recorder to be opened. That’s because, due to a safety mechanism, those that open them without any real interest, they usually see nothing in them. Those, of course, usually see nothing inside anything anyway. This has led many to express the view that this safety mechanism is probably unnecessary.
LogOut’s paper plane recorder has the form of a doctor’s handwritten prescription accompanied by a vinyl or cd and is released by Inner Ear.
''Από την πρώτη ακρόαση παροτρύνει σε δεύτερη. Ο Logout είναι ένας ζεστός, μελαγχολικός, χειμερινός τραγουδοποιός.’'
''Το αποτέλεσμα ακούγεται “καθαρό” αφήνοντας τον απαιτούμενο χώρο για να ξεδιπλωθεί η δυναμική που διαθέτουν τα τραγούδια του, αλλά και η φωνή του που συνολικά υπερβαίνει τα καθιερωμένα εγχώρια standards.’'
