This is the American dream This is the American dream We set off bombs together in the streets close to home And we wonder Is anybody home? Is anybody home? This is the American dream What is this American dream? What is this American dream? We never thought to think twice these choices left behind We’re always stuck in moments eternity will never find Is anybody home? Is anybody home? This is the American dream This is the American dream Explosions took us higher than we’ve ever been before Still we wonder Is anybody home? Is anybody home? Is anybody home? Is anybody home? This is the American dream I am the American dream What is this American dream? You are my American dream.

Last Call 07:49
In the end we all want more Life isn’t worth living if no one’s keeping score In the end we all want more There’s enough for everyone as long as you’re not poor In the end we’ll be at war We’ll shoot without sorrow to settle old scores In the end we’ll be at war We still won’t know what it is we’ve been fighting for We tried love But it wasn’t enough We tried, love At least we tried In the end we’re all the same We’ve been molded by greed, self-pity and shame In the end we’re all the same We look back and see what we never became We tried love But it wasn’t enough We tried, love At least we tried In the end I can’t see through Can’t tell the difference between this and loving you In the end I can’t see you ... And so I’m through

Alone 03:32
We listen to the stars as they die We listen and we wonder why We are alone We’re searching for someone to blame We search but the answer’s the same We are alone No future to cling to in this infinite space No truth to hold onto No love can replace… you Returning from nothing’s embrace We return but we never escape We are alone

about

Sean Kammer, a local singer-songwriter in Lincoln, Nebraska, released his new single, “Alone,” at midnight last night in support of his new EP, Impossible Skies, set for release on May 31 under pal David Ullman's Dreaming Out Loud Records label. The track, “Alone,” represents the sound and tone of the new record. Produced in Kammer’s home studio, this sound is at once intricately textured and unabashedly bare. It is utterly lacking in radio-worthy hooks, yet its subtle melodies linger long after the last echoes have faded to black. With this release, Kammer builds upon his previous album, Stargazer (2006), both musically and thematically, while retaining his adventurous willingness to challenge the contours of the singer-songwriter genre.

The title of the first single perhaps belies the fact that Kammer did not, in fact, make this record alone. While Kammer supplied the guitars, piano, percussion, and bass guitar, the EP’s genre-bending sound owes much to the contributions of two distinguished musicians with diverse musical backgrounds: Chris Steinke, who performed saxophone on two tracks, and Rebecca Wingo, who provided backing vocals on three tracks. Steinke grew up playing saxophone as a member of various jazz and blues bands in Lincoln, Nebraska, and after stints in Boston, Chicago, and back in his hometown, he now plays in a rock band and freelances as a jazz musician in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He has also appeared on releases by Tom Larson and Pablo Masis. While Steinke’s background is firmly rooted in jazz and blues, Wingo’s is in bluegrass and country, two genres she learned to love as a young child following her father’s band to countless bluegrass festivals in and out of her home state of North Carolina. While a college student in Chapel Hill, she co-founded the a cappella group Cadence. She is now an emerging star on the karaoke circuit in Lincoln.
