Published Jun 23, 2011In recent years, Vancouver label File Under: Music has amassed an impressive catalogue, including albums by Dan Mangan, Kathryn Calder, Graham Wright and Blackie and the Rodeo Kings. Now, the record company has announced its latest signing: In Medias Res.
The Vancouver indie rock quartet formed in the late '90s and have since released two LPs. Their latest full-length, It Was Warm and Sunny When We First Set Out, was self-released digitally in early 2011.
