And I'd give up forever to touch you 'Cause I know that you feel me somehow You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be And I don't wanna go home right now And all I can taste is this moment And all I can breathe is your life When sooner or later it's over I just don't wanna miss you tonight And I don't want the world to see me 'Cause I don't think that they'd understand When everything's made to be broken I just want you to know who I am And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming Or the moment of truth in your lies When everything feels like the movies Yeah, you bleed just to know you're alive And I don't want the world to see me 'Cause I don't think that they'd understand When everything's made to be broken I just want you to know who I am And I don't want the world to see me 'Cause I don't think that they'd understand When everything's made to be broken I just want you to know who I am And I don't want the world to see me 'Cause I don't think that they'd understand When everything's made to be broken I just want you to know who I am I just want you to know who I am I just want you to know who I am I just want you to know who I am -Goo Goo Dolls
[Lead singer and diva] Rockford the Raymond a.k.a. Young Blue Eyes has announced the end of the Cañon City exile in order to throw himself wholeheartedly into the new LP “Wagner 1: For I Loved the Moon“. Additional info to come following the “Daddyissues“EP, which is scheduled for release in spring 2015.
At last! Tj Toðdler’s debut studio LP The Young Men Smile is officially out today, though before you ask where it can be found, the title has already been deleted from Husqvarna’s catalog due to a perceived lack of interest. The title was available for purchase on major music retailer iTunes for a brief period earlier today but has since been removed. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
For now, the standard 8 track release can still be streamed via Soundcloud below.
With their début LP The Young Men Smile awaiting release in January, the ever-prolific TJ TODDLER (now a trio consisting of Rockford Raymond, Leatherface J-R and Sckott Schelel) have already completed work on the follow-up, a 5-song EP entitled Daddyissues. Details of the release are scarce at this time. The group looks forward to comemorating the release of their long awaited full-length with live shows in 2015, after a year-long absence from the stage in which they focused instead on composition.
Both songs taken from the sessions for the upcoming studio album The Young Men Smile, awaiting release in January 2015.
Clocking in at over seven minutes, single track “W-O-M-P-R-A-7-7″ is a hypnotic slab of post-dubstep funk built on heavy repetition, oscillating guitar loops and militaristic drum patterns, while b-side “Husqvarna” (named for the group’s vanity label) finds it’s formation in 2-step/UK garage and musique concrète, painted with shades of field recordings and heavily distorted samples over a minimalist dance beat.

In case you missed it, TJ TODDLER recently received high praise in Denver’s art/music/culture magazine, WESTWORD. Here is what they had to say:
This group of weirdos doesn’t play many shows. Their music is so far off mainstream it would be difficult to recommend to anyone that isn’t into the stranger end of This Heat, Captain Beefheart, Henry Cow, the Fugs and the Residents. Part performance art, part avant-garde, TJ Toddler is probably the most gloriously strange band in Denver.
Weirdos? Who do they think we are? While we vastly appreciate the thoughtful intentions of these words, let it be known that TJ TODDLER has nothing to do with “performance art”. Read the rest of the ‘Backbeat’ feature here and take the chance to stream the excellent ECHO BEDS and TOLLUND MEN while you are at it.
