nunezaugusto The album pins you down from the very beginning. Margaret's scream followed by the screeching and the droning. This album must be played without pauses. A real experience.

JAH What makes Chardiet's music so unique and impressive is how human it is, compared to almost all other noise. Her anguished vocals are at the forefront of it all, adding a really visceral sense of presence and urgency to her music. Favorite track: Sour Sap.

Andryan Powerful, real industrial. Music is very important to me --- a true highlight of my life is discovering new work like this. There are many new landscapes to be explored here.

about

Margaret Chardiet was born and raised in New York City. As a founding member of the Red Light District collective in Far Rockaway, NY she has been a figurehead in the underground experimental scene since the age of seventeen. She points out that the environment there amongst so many other experimental artists (amongst them Yellow Tears & Haflings) inspired her to keep making increasingly challenging work. She describes her drive to make noise music as something akin to an exorcism where she is able to express, her “deep-seated need/drive/urge/possession to reach other people and make them FEEL something [specifically] in uncomfortable/confrontational ways.” Engineered by Sean Ragon of Cult of Youth at his self-built recording studio Heaven Street, Abandon is Pharmakon’s first proper studio album and also her first widely distributed release.
