Cast A Half Shadow is the long-awaited second recording by The Instruments. This record evokes a tone that is both lush and atmospheric, with delicately orchestrated folk melodies. Refining her sense of arrangement and use of ambience, Heather McIntosh, the band's songwriter, along with fellow members of The Instruments, has developed a sophisticated song cycle with her sophomore record.

McIntosh has been a staple of the Athens music scene for the past decade. She is a classically trained cellist and earned her bachelor's degree in music from the University of Georgia. She is currently a member of the Athens' bands Circulatory System, Elf Power and Japancakes and has also played or recorded with bands such as Superchunk, Of Montreal, Lil Wayne, and Gnarles Barkley.
