Like My E.P. is Key of V's May 2012 pre-tour release. Songs "The Industry," "Modern Day Dinosaurs," "Squash," and "Bee" were all recorded around the time Key of V's last album, Things We Drew From the Treacle Well, was being produced, and consequently did not appear on that album. "Fire Safety" was a candidate for "Things We Drew" but did not make it onto the album due to it's length; it appears here with new vocals (Fire Safety was previously released on another limited edition E.P. called "Frack is Whack!"). "Like My Music," which the E.P.'s title alludes to, was recorded in November, 2011 and released stream-only in a blog on Key of V's website, where songwriter Val LaCerra wrote "we could lose a stable, local show to a crowd pleaser any night because the venues we book operate on a certain formula that has little to do with art." As such, "Like My E.P." is a tribute to the process of booking and organizing a tour, which as some of the album art was meant to suggest, had little to do with music. The album is also in honor of friends, family, fans, and other bands who worked together with Key of V, making it possible for them to tour so others could hear their music!
