about

All profits go to Spay and Neuter KC
Find out more about them: www.snkc.net First and foremost, we love music. This kind, that kind, any kind of music, really. We listen to music constantly. It’s our passion. And we wanted to create a compilation of artists that inspire and hopefully introduce you to some new music that ignites the same sort of passion in you that it does us.

One of the goals when we started The Record Machine, was to create a home for the music we love and help it find its way to listeners’ ears. Since the beginning, we have always released music from bands that we love.

The problem: there are so many more artists that make music we love. The door opened even further when we started curating Middle of the Map Fest. We got to include everyone from the well-known to the emerging to the underground.

With this in mind, we wanted to start a new compilation series that we have entitled How To Keep Dreaming. Music is something that we find inspiring, powerful, moving. Our dreams are made of music. These songs provide a context for what we are currently listening to, loving, and what we hope you find personally inspiring.

Track Name: Light Music - Amadeus
Spitting out your teeth with your hands tied back
On the 9 o'clock news they say you're under attack now (How?)
Pumping out tears like a factory
From across the sea you call for me now (How?)
From the bottom of the ocean
To the tops of the mountains

Pumping out tears like a factory
From across the sea you call for me now (How?)
Ripping out the pages of your favorite book
Oh, don’t look now, but they brought the hook out!
From the bottom of the ocean
To the tops of the mountains

Don't look now 'cause its a long way down
Your feet don't know which way to run

I was so damn low
I was thinking out loud
If I knew how that I know
Everything I know now
The wait to stand the ocean's walls
The islands to which we'd go
I'll find you in the boulevards
The avenues we know
We wait a long time with the boots we shake
And the marrow in our bones to live
Mocking all the other ones
Let's not and say we did

Don't look now 'cause its a long way down
Your feet don't know which way to run
Track Name: Sharks In The Deep End - Shadows In The Sunset
Well I didn’t connect the dots,
until you were mine
like the hands on a paranoid clock,
we’re tiptoeing further in time

shadows in the sunset
the push and pull of time
the future isn’t yet set
but I feel it on your mind
and I know you’re upset
cause we’re running out of time
but the future isn’t set yet
shadows in the sunset

will we let the minutes pervert our love
out of foolish pride?
or can we accept who and where we are,
before the church bell chimes,
before we die?

shadows in the sunset
the push and pull of time
the future isn’t yet set
but I feel it on your mind
and I know you’re upset
cause we’re running out of time
but the future isn’t set yet
shadows in the sunset
Track Name: Nicholas St. James - Salvation
There's blood on the road, you can see it in the stars
Not everything dead there has been hit by a car, you're screaming
Salvation, coming up around the bend
Where everything you have is in someone else's hand

There is no destination, the only place you can get
Is hoping you're in heaven before the Devil knows you're dead
Come! Sit! Everything we have is on the house
Besides, you ain't going nowhere, nowhere to go in our town

You don't know why you're here, but you been here before
Don't you remember that song that was playing while you were walking out the door
Why don't you stop me if you have heard this one before
Mmm, I'm gonna' be bad no more

Home, isn't different, it's just something you come home to
How's it feel when you're sleeping with all that home below you, dreaming
Salvation, dreaming of the promise land
Where everything you have is someone else's again
Track Name: Jerad Tomasino - Door Number One
Nine moons. Love estranged. Snow-

fall outside a frame.

Been tuned in for a while… Stray.



There’s no God telling me, “Son,

Open the door. Let your love free.

Use your life as a light and let it shine on. No,

I just believe



This silence can be peace, soft absence, staid stillness, or

Filled, flush, with beautiful things that

Bloom and relieve.



Nine years we’ve been estranged. Still

Snow falls outside of my window pane.

Been tuned out for a while… and I’m okay.

I just feel weary for the world

Willing to war for our ways.

All of our rules..

“How to play”

It just feels like a game.

Well, me?

I’m going…

Going…

Gone.
