Before the ink had dried on Belknap's deal to release “Radio Ready” via Communal Heart Records, bassist Matt Miller announced that he would be leaving the band to join the newly formed At The Drive-In spin-off, Sparta. In the weeks following Miller's announcement, Belknap's remaining members (Matt Schmitz & Greg Sosa) looked desperately for a replacement, so the band could continue, but after auditioning half the city, they realized that no one would ever be able to wedge their way into the airtight space that the two of them created as a rhythm section again. When their search exhausted, the band dissolved, the EP was shelved, and everyone retreated into other projects. This EP represents only a small fraction of the band's written and performed material, but sadly, almost all of its recorded output. The intricacies and bombastic nature of this double bass and drums trio is captured in all its subtle nuance and dexterity here by Mike Major, which should come as no surprise knowing that he was able to tame At The Drive-In to tape for releases like “Vaya”, and sculpt Sparta's initial material into "Porcelain" for Dreamworks.
