Twinsday: Snowpocalypse 2.0

Or, 'How I spent my rock'n'roll snow day'

We all deal with catastrophe in different ways. So when Snowpocalypse 2.0 hit today, it's only logical that the OKS Twitterverse would have a myriad of reactions.

Red City Radio is incredulous: "Broken skylight in our building. It is officially snowing indoors. I blame Dally."

Dance Robots, Dance! is ecstatic: "boss said i don't have to work today. snow day! video games, fake chicken nuggets and finishing remixes! @katiewicks @baleoutphotos"

Samantha Crain is resigned: "http://twitpic.com/3y139m - Frozen pipes again. Its come to this I guess."

Sherree Chamberlain is logical: "considering making myself watch food inc. on my snow day so i'll stop binge eating on account of cabin fever."

Harp and Lyre has gone crazy: "Getting snowed in again. Time to watch Bring It On."

Wayne Coyne is, well, Wayne Coyne: "The snow drives back the foot that's slow http://twitvid.com/FXNOY"

South spark

Oklahoma musicians weren’t great at the state’s first official South by Southwest showcase. They were epic.

The Non was winding down the first evening of The Buffalo Lounge’s three-day stand at Austin, Texas’ South by Southwest music festival, when a fascinated reveler couldn’t hold his thoughts in any longer.

Enid’s Black Canyon release debut album on Bandcamp

‘Battlefield Darlins’ features OKC singer Sherree Chamberlain

Anybody in Oklahoma City with their ears in even remote proximity to the ground have been hearing boot-stomping and hand-clapping the last few months.

The alt-country/folk-rock sounds are coming this way from Enid songwriter Jake Morisse, who starred in Okie videographer/photographer Nathan Poppe’s debut film, “Black Canyon’s Crossroads for the Restless.” After a bit of tinkering with the band’s sound, lineup and direction, Morisse recorded and released the debut on Bandcamp, which features Enid instrumental whiz and former Mayola frontman Riley Jantzen and Normanite Tyler Hopkins.

But most notable is Sherree Chamberlain’s contribution to the record; a graceful, soul-singing depiction of the female in the album’s Civil War-era romance. Expect a review in the Aug. 3 edition of the Oklahoma Gazette. But for now, you should definitely head over to the band’s Bandcamp page and download the album. Below is the trailer to the aforementioned film which —in the interest of full disclosure— I helped make. Enjoy.

Kickstart a local album!

Help Okie singer Sherree Chamberlain record her second disc.

There aren’t a whole lot of local female musicians who are as talented as Sherree Chamberlain. Her debut album, 2009’s “The Wasp in the Room” was as lovely a work as you’ll find around these parts, and it’s most definitely in need of a follow-up. To the Internets!

Chamberlain has started a Kickstarter page in an attempt to raise money to record her sophomore album, which she’s already written, and titled “New Skin.” On the page is a really funny, candid video of her discussing the details of the disc, and what she’ll do if a baby donates money to her cause: “I will hunt down a mother, find some breast milk, and feed it to you in a bottle.”

Watch, then head to the site and pledge some money! She’s already $1,700 toward her goal, which she must achieve by the end of this month.  



Also, I just realized that for a $500 donation, she’d cover any song of my choosing. Never in my life have I been more sure of the fact that I want to hear Sherree Chamberlain record a version of “Int’l Players Anthem (I Choose You).”

Black Canyon

Looking for some locally grown alt-country?


Music

Matt Carney
The subject of budding Okie videographer Nathan Poppe’s debut documentary, the foot-stomping Enid alt-country dudes in Black Canyon released their debut record “Battlefield Darlins” on Bandcamp.com last month, and — happy surprise! — they recruited Sherree Chamberlain to guest as the gal in this musical romance.
