Portland-based band There Is No Mountain describes itself as "specializing in music that's fun to play." The duo is reminiscent of artists like Andrew Bird and Dirty Projectors, both of whom combine a love for folk/Americana music with psychedelic, chamber-pop qualities that set them apart from other, more traditional folk artists. The band was previously known as Ascetic Junkies, but has recently changed both its name and its "sonic direction" after its members had been writing music together for nearly a decade. The band just released its self-titled debut album under the new name. If this genre-defying, energetic album is any indication, the live show at Boulder this Tuesday is sure to be fun for everyone, audience and musicians alike.
There Is No Mountain performs Tuesday, April 30, 8 p.m. at Bolder Coffee, 100 Alexander St. Free. bouldercoffeeco.com.
