MIDDLESPOON is the gender-bending love child of DJ/Producer Jinx McGee and vocalist Alexander Beatz, who are steering pop music away from its heteronormative traditions. The duo's fresh take on issues from polyamory to patriarchy to transphobia are layered over whimsical, bouncy beats that could turn any protest march into a block party. MIDDLESPOON's experiment of straining pop through their own queer filter has culminated in 'HouseWife', their debut album, out in the summer of 2018 on Banana Pop Records.
