Something About Today was the major label debut by the Screaming Trees for Epic Records. It would be followed up by their first full album for the label, Uncle Anesthesia, in 1991. Two of the tracks from the EP ("Uncle Anesthesia" and "Ocean of Confusion") were later reused on the Uncle Anesthesia album, while a third, "Who Lies in Darkness," was later compiled on the Ocean of Confusion collection. The "Numb Inversion Version" of "Something About Today" remains exclusive to this EP. The 12" vinyl version contains all the songs on side A, while side B contains etchings made by the band.
