Having left fans of the The Hunger Games by Lions Gate Entertainment founded in Vancouver, I walked into Magpie fashion only to discover two amazing ladies one of them being Karen the owner of a Vancouver based record label FU:M File Under: Music.
Magpie is the magical kingdom where anything is possible and any given time. After all the design for Canada’s Got Talent judge, Prince, Andy Allo, Lara St. John, Jessica Mitchell. It was Magpie that dressed the lady that discovered Lady Gaga my friend Wendy Starland and Chris Clemence of the band Rapscallions.
One thing you do if you’ve lived in New York or Los Angles is network. The internet is great but a face to face the adventure of discovery can not happen unless you are out and about and hitting the road that leads to adventure and discovery.
Karen and her friend where busy looking at designs new jackets, dresses but Karen took the time being the lady of discovery herself to take a call from Chris Clemence from Los Angeles, as well as tell me about her label that she started and In Medias Res.
Formed over a decade ago, Vancouver-based In Medias Res have risen from a fledgling act full of potential to one of the most lauded indie-rock bands in the city, whose recent release has them poised to reach new heights. Three years ago, after touring extensively, selling out multiple pressings of their Intimacy EP and debut album Of What Was, and establishing a passionate fan base across the country, the band went back into the studio. Re-teaming with esteemed local producer Jonathan Anderson (Aidan Knight, Stablio), the quartet intended to best their previous effort, which had been met with glowing reviews and sales of over 2000 copies. But then life intervened. Rumors spread of the band’s demise as the album was slow in coming; meanwhile, the band rewrote, rerecorded, and remixed. In the assured hands of Dave Carswell and John Collins (The New Pornographers, Destroyer, Tegan and Sara) the album finally found its form: It Was Warm and Sunny When We First Set Out, a new release by In Medias Res.
