You’ve heard the expression “it is what it is”. What this collection is: most were “left-offs” of recording sessions for albums over the past decade. They didn’t fit or there were too many songs.
Songs 2 through 4 were from the “7” sessions (’06-’07)
5 through 8 from the “Land of X” sessions (’03…actually “TV Repair Man” was recorded in ’02 and brought complete as a possible inclusion on “Land of X”.)
Songs 10 and 12 came from the “Sunrise In Reverse” recordings (’05)
The other three songs were recorded separately and included on 3 different compilation albums:
song 1 for the “Dandercroft” music magazine cd (’04)
song 9 for the “KKFI Reclamation Project” cd (’05) and song 11 for the “Beckinator” compilation cd (’05)

Peace to you and much goodness. Forrest
