Published Aug 18, 2014As previously reported, a major medical emergency inspired New York noise artist Pharmakon (a.k.a. Margaret Chardiet) to make her next LP, Bestial Burden. To help us get into her mindframe ahead of the record's October 14 due date through Sacred Bones, Chardiet is streaming the record's jagged "Body Betrays Itself."
A deep, penetrative bass throb starts things off ominously enough, but the track soon rips into a terrifying assortment of drones, scalpel-sharp screams and invasive electronic noise. Despite the chaos of it all, each stabbing sound lands with surgical precision, making for a concise though terrifying soundscape.
You'll find the track down below.
