Hockey Dad Compiles over 600 Tracks from the Bloggers for 'Sign of the Times'

Hockey Dad Compiles over 600 Tracks from the Bloggers for 'Sign of the Times'
Defunct Vancouver pop explorers the Bloggers still feel like unsung heroes, with their live shows and incredibly vast output making them cult figures. They nearly got their due with a box set in 2011, but that didn't surface. Now, at long last, Hockey Dad Records has let loose a significant portion of the band's entire discography.

For those not in the know, the Bloggers recorded every single band practice they ever had and improvised new songs each time. As such, they amassed an enormous catalogue of recorded material. What's more, the songs are shockingly good and usually come out like fully-formed pop hits.

Hockey Dad has prepared a new CD-only full-length called Sign of the Times which features 13 tracks from the band. Album tracks "Sign of the Times," "Maps of the Stars" and "Rip It Up and Start Again" can be streamed below.

That's not all, however — the release also comes with a DVD-R that features a vast number of selections from the band's recorded output. It features over 600 songs, recorded between November of 2006 and August of 2013, and it's not even the complete discography.

Sign of the Times is available now from Hockey Dad Records. Pick up a copy here and check out a few of the tracks below.
