Genders' sound is a little hard to pinpoint. It reminds me of post-garage indie, but carries their nostalgic hue in a likeable way. What if a California surf band, a Portland women-inclusive guitar group and an early '00s New York indie band fused into one versatile being? Genders can go hard, they can go soft, but the Portland band definitely has a competitive edge on their harmonies and spooky psych influences. I'd disagree that they're goth—their 2013 record, Get Lost, loves the sun a little too much. I think their self-classification of "YOLO rock" is apt. Genders is good driving music for a summer river trip, and their live shows are tight as hell. SUZETTE SMITH
