Magic Mouth, Kingdom Crumbs, Dual Mode

When: Wed., Feb. 6, 8:30 p.m. 2013


It's no secret that the magic mouth of Magic Mouth is the one positioned on Stephfon Bartee's face. His singing is mind-blowing to such an extent that Magic Mouth could be a runaway success as an a cappella solo project. Indeed, the song "Pick It Up" off their Believer EP comes close: Featuring only voices—soulful and dark—and Ana Briseño's urgent drumming, it sounds almost like a neo-spiritual. It's a real spine-tingler, partly because it's so different from the euphoria of their other songs. None of this is to say that the other three members of Magic Mouth are peripheral. Brendan Scott's funk bass, Peter Condra's guitar, and Briseño's drums are essential to their driving soul-funk, which demands to be danced to. REBECCA WILSON
