Abandon is the proper debut LP from young New York noise metallurgist Pharmakon, or Margaret Chardiet. To be honest, neither her tones nor her technique are that novel, as she lifts liberally from the toolkits of damage-doers such as Throbbing Gristle, Mouthus and Prurient. But Chardiet's sense of development is her secret wonder. Drums steadily double and triple, and simple sounds mount until they become visceral body shocks. Abandon combines the mind-scramble of noise with the power of techno and, in the process, exposes Chardiet as one of the experimental realm's most exciting new recruits. With Lust for Youth, Body of Light and several others. —Grayson Currin
