"The Glass Half" is a mixture of things that were, things that are, and some things that have not yet come to pass. It takes it's songs from a discarded album "Mistakes", the new album "The Gift Horse", and a future more electronica album, yet to be titled. The first track, "Cycles" (also on the LP) was recorded in San Diego at SDRL (then studio of Pall Jenkin's of Three Mile Pilot / The Black Heart Procession) by engineer & producer Robert Cheek, who has worked with Band Of Horses, Chelsea Wolfe, Tera Melos, Deftones, By Sunlight and many more.
