Two of the songs included are acoustic versions of tunes from last year's Temporary Resident album. The reworks were recorded at a Nashville studio with core band members Marti Sarbit and Rusty Matyas gathered around a single microphone back in the fall of 2011. The remaining song is a cover of Cake's "Mexico" that was recorded at the band's Winnipeg practice space.

At the bottom of the page is also a video for the low-key Temporary Resident standout "Purple Heart." The clip, directed by Tilman Singer, for this electro-inflected tune is appropriately star-dazzled and was shot in Germany.
