An ambient, post-rock, and post-metal project much in the same vein as Sunn 0))), Godspeed You Black Emperor!, and Nadja, Half Makeshift is the brainchild of sole member Nathan Michael. Begun in Maryland in 2004, Half Makeshift released its first works in 2007. (In truth, almost all of the project's work was released that year.) The first album, Aphotic Leech, was released on Utech, and was a one-track affair. That same year, the four-song L'Anse Amort was released (on 20 Buck Spin), as was the album Final. In 2008, Half Makeshift released what was said to be its last full-length, Omen.
