inter.funda.stifle is the second full-length album by alternative rock band Fair to Midland. Tracks including "Dance of the Manatee," "Vice/Versa," "A Seafarer's Knot," "The Walls of Jericho," "Kyla Cries Cologne," "When the Bough Breaks" and "Upgrade^Brigade" were re-recorded for their later album and major label debut, Fables from a Mayfly: What I Tell You Three Times Is True.

The album features four instrumental songs as independent tracks: "Preambles in 3rd Person," "Cipieron," "Inter.Mission" and "When the Bough Breaks." All of them except for "Preambles in 3rd Person" were re-recorded and used later as instrumental segues for their major debut album.
