There Is No Mountain, music. This Portland, OR-based husband-and-wife duo combines percussion, guitar, and an affinity for vocal harmony to create a unique brand of turn-on-a-dime psychedelic pop with intricate, world-music-influenced arrangements. Reviewers have tried to peg the duo's musical influences in genres ranging from jazz to folk, ancient music to psychedelic rock, and world music to doom metal. Band members Kal Giaritta and Matt Harmon just call it “pop with a short attention span”.
