A weird acoustic version of an already weird little ditty we wrote on tour.

The idea was to write a song strictly in the suspended pentatonic scale (a mode of the normal pentatonic scale that isn't quite minor or major because of the absence of a major or minor third). This means there are only five notes used in the vocal melody or any of the instrument parts. When we play the song live, we get pretty jammy and loud with it and Matt strays from the scale in his guitar solos, but rest assured, this short, bare-bones recorded version is 100% suspended pentatonic.

Recorded live in the basement, and then embellished with overdubbed claps, extra vocals, and glockenspiel.

Hi, we're There Is No Mountain. We live in Portland and play songs that are psychedelic, rhythmic, experimental, and also basically pop music.

We are very judgmental about pizza, salsa, and burritos, but are otherwise very nice people.
