A live-to-tape, largely improvised E.P. culled from performances by Josh Olmstead Band (under the pseudonym Archives of Oblivion) on the 10th of March 2012 at High 5 Recording Studio inside the Maas Building, Philadelphia. It is complete and exact. No studio overdubs or re-recording of voices or instruments have been added with the exception of two backing vocals, which were captured in harmony with one microphone at a later date.
