The House of Tomorrow EP is the third major release by The Magnetic Fields, and the first with Stephin Merritt as the main vocalist. Merge Records reissued it in 1996. The EP's five songs are built on both musical and vocal repetition, so much so that the sleeve reads "five loop songs" as a pun on "five love songs".[3]

  1. "Young and Insane"
  2. "Technical (You're So)"
  3. "Alien Being" (Excluded in the original 7" vinyl release)
  4. "Love Goes Home to Paris in the Spring"
  5. "Either You Don't Love Me or I Don't Love You"
