♫♪  Pharmakon - “Body Betrays Itself”

Max Power: “I saw her crawl around and scream for 10 minutes at some parking lot in Portland. It was awesome.”

If you’ve had the pleasure of witnessing Pharmakon live, you know what Max is talking about. Seeing her on the tour for Abandon (TMT’s #4 FAVORITE ALBUM OF 2013!) was totally worth all of the headaches involved with being a 34-year-old father of a young kid out past 2 AM on a weeknight. If “Body Betrays Itself” gives us any indication of what’s to come on Margaret Chardiet’s sophomore album for Sacred Bones (out on October 14), then you might want to get some gauze and medical tape ready, because you’re gonna have blood spurting out of your ears. The album itself, inspired by Chardiet’s own recent invasive surgery, is supposedly even more brutal than its predecessor. Don’t believe me? Listen to this newest jam and then try to remain patient as we begin the looooooooong-ass wait until mid October.
