 2011, self-released,

 The Moon at Half-Mast is Accordions' second and final full-length album. It was recorded at Butler University's studios from November 2010 to May 2011.

The Moon at Half-Mast was self-released in a limited run of only 300 copies, in support of Accordions' European tour in the summer of 2011. The album was illustrated by the talented Sara Drake.

Shortly after its release, Accordions lost an integral part of the group, bassist Paul Cobb, to an accidental death. Accordions performed a handful of shows in support of Paul's posthumously released 7", Hammer Screwdriver's 'Bad Handshake,' but ultimately decided to disband.

The album's liner notes begin with this epigram from poet Philip Appleman:

"A man who was immortal

would be as ugly

as a plastic flower."
