► “Crawling on Bruised Knees" by Pharmakon [Sacred Bones]

from Abandon, out now!

(via asktheangels)

"Body Betrays Itself" fully exhibits the overriding concept of Margaret Chardiet’s new album as PharmakonBestial Burden. The Brooklyn-based noise artist explained the theming process recently, talking about her 2013 surgery—how it made her think about the body’s disintegration over time, how there’s no sense of control when stricken by disease. This track outlines that process in miniature. Chardiet lets the music slowly break apart around her, ultimately building toward a moment of dissonance from which it never fully recovers. 

Chardiet’s music is never too concerned with recovery anyway. Listening to her work is like watching skin gradually wither over time, as it succumbs to the travails of aging. There’s very little forward momentum in “Body Betrays Itself”. Instead, it ominously loops in place, creating a picture of its creator trapped in a private ordeal, barely able to move. Chardiet’s wrestling with her own mortality here, and like the best music she’s released to date under this name, it’s simultaneously uncomfortable and captivating to behold.

The food you eat or brush you’re using may have been made by a worker earning less than a dollar an hour — not in the developing world, but in the invisible workforce inside America’s prisons. Share this if you oppose prison labor for profit.

Source: http://ow.ly/iwTlY

When I was in prison I worked 3 shifts a day, 5 days a week, starting at 5 AM and ending at 8 PM. I was paid $5.25 a month. Pay for the inmates who facilitate UNICOR workers (by making their food, washing their laundry, etc,) is even lower than the wages cited in the above graphics. The prison industry is also a slave industry, and it isn’t just corporations who benefit. All the furniture you see in federal buildings, post offices, DMVs, etc, where do you think it comes from? Prison labor. I think a lot of people know about states that use prison labor for license plates, but fewer people know that the plaques on doors at city halls, and sometimes the doors themselves, come from prison labor. The incarcerated are a hyper-exploited class unto themselves, and almost no one seems to be helping them to organize.

IT GENUINELY IS NO COINCIDENCE THAT BLACK PEOPLE GET IMPRISONED WAY THE HELL MORE THAN WHITE PEOPLE. THIS IS HOW SLAVERY CARRIED THE FUCK ON.

For-profit prisons are a huge business and this is part of why. 

Also, did you know that it’s in the Constitution that people convicted of crimes can be used as slave labor? That’s another part of the Constitution that needs to be changed.

How do you mourn someone who’s still alive, but can no longer safely be part of your life? How do you mourn people who have been bad to you? and would keep hurting you if you didn’t cut them out instead? Equal parts victory and loss.

actualising looks my teenage self always dreamed of achieving. this is kinda the aesthetic my 13 year old hole/babes in toyland obsessed baby self wanted to attain but yeah, never did, cuz complicated relationship to femininity, it’s devaluation in hardcore punk, etc.
