LOH - Cabin Life Cover V2-3Linus of Hollywood’s fifth album, Cabin Life, is yet another fine offering from an artist whose mastery of the melodic pop form continues to dazzle. Linus visited with me on the March 28 edition of Pure Pop Radio: In Conversation to talk about his new songs and revisit some of his musical history, charting a course from his Florida roots to his time in Los Angeles and a life spent luxuriating in the many-tiered world of music.

During this typically in-depth interview, Linus talked about his time in the punk-pop group Size 14, his reinvention of Nick Gilder’s classic song “Hot Child in the City,” his first solo recordings, and the rich textured compositions that fuel Cabin Life, the songs for which were written in cabins in the Lake Arrowhead, California area. Five songs were played amidst the detailed conversation: “Let’s Rob a Bank” (Size 14), “Hot Child in the City,” “Sunday Morning,” “Cabin Life,” and “It Was You.”

Linus of Hollywood’s Cabin Life is available for purchase from the artist’s web store; Bandcamp, where you can listen to the songs played from Cabin Life during this program; Amazon, and iTunes.
