Summer school

Head back to school without the hassle of tests or report cards. Plus, we’re pretty sure Japanese Bookbinding wasn’t offered where you matriculated.

School is fun. No, really. Even if you weren’t Sally Study as a kid, going back — especially to these classes — can be enriching.

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.

About that lockout …

...because you won't like The Beard when he's angry.

Gazette staff
The NFL’s lockout ended last week, but we’ve only just begun for the NBA. And good luck interviewing any Oklahoma City Thunder players through the home office.
