It’s been a while since we’ve talked about Vancouver’s In Medias Res. But that’s not to say that they haven’t been insanely busy over the last while. Or that we love them any less than we did in 2011, when their album “It Was Warm And Sunny When We First Set Out” was our #7 album of the year.
I got a tweet from the band overnight telling me about their newest track, “Red Apples”, and true to form, it is a freaking phenomenal song. Recorded at Bunker Studios, the track was originally written by Bill Callahan, who some of you may remember better under his stage name Smog, and was released on his 1997 album “Red Apple Falls”. You can stream IMR’s video for the song above.
According to the band, they are working towards a new album, which will hopefully be available late this year or early next. Based on my love of their last album, I have pretty high expectations. Odds are very good they’ll surpass them.
