Soda grows up

Whether you call it soda, pop or (the ill-advised) soda pop, fizzy drinks have gone fancy.


Food and Drink Features

Christina Nihira
While summer is still a scorching celebration, try treating yourself to a decadent soda. Curious cream sodas, spicy ginger ales, rich root beers, tart citrus beverages with genuine bitterness, complex colas — they’re all chilling out there beside surprising, one-of-a-kind flavors as diverse as cucumber, chocolate and jalapeño oil.

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.
