We’ve got a label feature page on iTunes now. What better place to catch up on our discography?

Here it is

and here’s some not too distant history.

TIFF gets stiffed and upstaged this Thursday (Sept 15) ’cause ARMY GIRLS are releasing their new EP with support from Tropics and Brian Borcherdt. Come to Double Double Land and witness.
You can also pick up a copy at Soundscapes and Rotate This
And if you’re not in Toronto, you can get a copy of this wonderful EP in the mail right here.
Or get it right here on iTunes

Blocks is very excited to announce our latest upcoming release, ‘Close To the Bone’. This is Army Girls debut – and our 69th – and it is a very handsome, very limited edition CD ep. It’ll hit the streets September 13th.
Have a look, and a listen.

“The Power”

And here’s another beautiful video from southern souls. Witness the magic of this 2 piece (plus of course the sunbathing back up singers).
