Mountains and Rainbows are many locals' favorite band, but they've only self-released a dodgy-sounding cassette tape despite being together for a few years. Their music is big, intense, and hard to define. Herky-jerky rhythms and occasionally quaking vocals might have you thinking New Wave, but if anything, they act as a stellar update to the art-punk of mid '70s Midwestern bands like the Mirrors, X-X, or the Electric Eels. Seriously, they're that great.
