Imagine a runaway train barreling toward you.

Now what if that same was mewing?

That’s sort of how the VDub crew felt when Black Canyon hopped into the Spy Van.

Known for rowdy and raucous live shows, the OKC-based band is no stranger to volume. Frontman Jake Morisse’s hearty laugh is evidence enough.

So, we were pleasantly surprised to hear a softer side to Black Canyon. “Weary Hands” is as warm and genuine as the scratches in your favorite record.

Black Canyon will turn things up this Saturday as they release a new album alongside Beau Jennings & The Tigers.

Don’t miss out.

Random is hearing Kyle Field of the LA folk project Little Wings tell a story about the dangerous combination of a moving car and a bear.

Finding a 12 string guitar with 11 strings is a little random too.

But most random is finding a blue VW van sitting behind Gray Owl Coffee just begging Field and Sherree Chamberlain to play a song.

Mind you, this episode wasn’t filmed inside our famous green van, but it was more than suitable for a surprise session.

After a last minute show decision, Field decided to visit Norman after a Dallas show fell through. Chamberlain approached him about singing on the song “Look at What the Light Did Now,” which Feist is known to cover.

When Chamberlain showed up to the coffee shop, she was gleaming at the opportunity to practice the song. After a last minute trip to Blackwatch Studios, she found a suitable guitar and we headed behind Gray Owl to perform this gentle track.

Please enjoy.

Here’s Little Wings’ song on Vimeo if that’s your thing.
