Happy New Year, everybody. We’re celebrating by sending all our IndieGoGo donors the first of the twelve singles they’ll be reciving in 2022. It’s got two songs. The first is “Normal Never Was,” a song about how the better pasts we imagine rarely were. The b-side is “Curse of the Bobblehead,” a true story commissioned by Justin Beland, for his father-in-law Marc Gold. This is probably the last time TMJ will ever sing about sportsball, but you needn’t be a fan of the game (or, even, Too Much Joy) to enjoy this particular song, which has lessons for us all.
