If you’ve read this far, there’s a reward for you. You know how I said that Finale/Reprise was the last thing Carah worked on with Shiny Toy Guns? Well Carah has already been featured in a track by Spookey Ruben (I have no idea how long ago this was made). I don’t quite think the song does Carah justice, but it’s nice to hear something from her outside of the band.
PS: I like the concept of these fan-art Season of Poison CD covers. Shiny Toy Guns: Digital and Analog, Flushing it Out: computer generated fonts and analog ink on paper with water damage. There is some nice minimalistic symmetry happning there.
Also, check out how Carah explained that she didn’t leave the band by choice here.
