Album liner reads:

"We promised Jeremy we would do a Travels in Constants E.P. literally over four years ago. Since then we've been sidetracked by an astonishing number of things. 2005 was/is to be our year to take a bit of a step back and take some time to write new music, and along the way somewhere we got an idea for doing this E.P. in a different way than we've ever approached writing music.... It can take us months and months to write even a song. Sometimes it comes much quicker, but often we spend an afternoon trying out new melodies and riffs and drum beats, playing things over and over, obsessing and arguing and sighing and sitting silently for what seems to be hours on end.... So, for this, our idea was to take two weeks and write and record a song every day. (We ended up doing this for eight days and the rest of the two weeks was spent mixing the results). No riffs were to be written beforehand; things would be made up on the spot. It seemed daunting but fun and perhaps, instructive. A learning experience. A chance to try new instruments and new ways of thinking about writing songs. It's also our first attempt at recording ourselves (the whole thing was recorded in Michael's house). Anyway, here are the results. We hope you enjoy."
