Photos by Horace Long, Just Out Art Director
Local Portland band Magic Mouth plays at the Portland Queer Music Fest on July 22, 2012.
Magic Mouth seems to be an apt name, as they’re the local act getting the most buzz. Not part of the stereotypical gay mafia style of house beats, these funky, electro rockers evoke a boldly spiritual sound with a down to earth rock beat that makes their genre-spanning music at once very Portland, very queer, and yet so far beyond either.
