Genders, The Black Apples, Woodwinds

When: Sun., Nov. 11, 9 p.m. 2012


When Portland group Youth split earlier this year, members Maggie Morris, Stephen Leisy, and Matthew Hall quickly picked up the pieces and formed Genders, adding drummer Katherine Paul (Forest Park) to round out the new group. Now Genders is releasing their debut EP, a self-titled, three-track record that's sparkly, buoyant, and forlorn—the group describes themselves as "psych-pop-mope-dance" and it's tough to find something more precise than that. Their EP is excellent, highlighted by "Sugarcoat," a yearning pop tune that shifts from calm and collected, to soaring with abandon with the shrugging shift from chorus to verse. Genders celebrate the release of their EP with LA's the Black Apples and Woodwinds, the project of Megan Spear of Jared Mees and the Grown Children, who also have a new record released tonight.
