There Is No Mountain

When: Fri., Oct. 4 2013

Americana, psych-pop

Here in the Holy City, we see plenty of great acts, and some are quirkier than others. Case in point: Portland, Ore.’s There Is No Mountain, a psyche-folk duo featuring vocalist and guitarist Matt Harmon and vocalist, percussionist, and keyboard player Kali Giaritta. “With the live show, we have a broad two-part mission statement: keep ourselves entertained and try to also keep things catchy and engaging for the audience,” Harmon says. “So you can expect a lot of intricate, surprising arrangements and dynamic twists and turns.” There Is No Mountain spends a lot of time touring, and right now, they’re touring in support of its solid 2013 self-titled LP, a stripped-down collection of left-field folk and mescaline Americana. So far, Harmon and Giaritta are feeling the love from their growing fanbase. “Our favorite thing about performing is seeing people smile from ear to ear for the entire set,” Harmon says. If you catch this clever duo at the Sparrow this week, we bet you’ll be smiling too. —Tamara Younkins FRIDAY
