In promotion of their debut album, Technology Is a Dead Bird, Mars Argo and Titanic Sinclair began to release homemade acoustic videos of songs from the record in 2009, beginning with "Machine" on October 14 and "Suicide Birds" on December 17.
The duo began re-recording old and unfinished material with professional producer Johnny K at Groovemaster Studios in 2010, and released acoustic demo videos for "Electric Car" and a rewritten "Technology Is a Dead Bird" filmed at the 'Blue Room' of the studio to document it in early June of that year.
All four of the aforementioned uploads were later set to private in 2010 and the EP was released on August 18, 2010, after fan inquiries about where they went. The EP was specifically advertised as a collection of "rare demos and acoustic performances". It was removed from sale a few months later.
In a similar vein to the "Machine" and "Suicide Birds" videos, Mars and Titanic released an acoustic performance video of "Using You" to promote Linden Place on May 26, 2011. "Everything Turns to Gold" was released as their final acoustic video on February 9, 2012. These performances would soon replace the Blue Room sessions as the third and fourth tracks of the EP's 2012 rerelease.
- There used to be a popular misconception that "Spider in My Bathtub" belonged to this EP. However, it was not present in any version of the tracklisting.
