Los Angeles-based alt-country band the Far West recently met up with the people behind Jam in the Van in Torrance, Calif., and performed a quick set inside the vehicle’s intimate confines.
The quintet managed to get their guitars, a drum kit and keyboard inside the van to record a few tracks off 2014′s Any Day Now.
The gritty, twangy “Hudson Valley,” “The Bright Side” and “On the Road” offer a good example of the Far West’s Americana sound, with hints of Waylon Jennings and Wilco threaded throughout.
Watch all three clips below.

L.A.-based Americana band the Far West just released their sophomore album Any Day Now, and to promote the new effort, they’ve dropped a music video for the alt-country track “Bright Side.”
While the album was recorded at a vintage hot rod shop in Southern California, the band chose to film the video in a more traditional Americana venue.
“The Grand Ole Echo is a country and Americana music institution in Los Angeles,” said bassist Robert Black. “It’s been running every Sunday in the summers for almost a decade. We play it once a year, and we couldn’t believe no one had used it as a backdrop for a video yet. It’s got kind of a family vibe for us, and we wanted to try to capture that.”
