about

Songwriter, producer, and recording artist Lindenfield has released his newest album “Punk Family,” a tribute to members, real and imaginary, of his immediate family.

The idea of a family-focused punk record itself might feel contradictory— most punk records (including the 70s punk that inspired this record) focus on youthful rebellion and political anti-establishment.). But, says Lindenfield, “When I think about spending time with my family, I plan on feeling angsty around them and having a lot of fun. Punk was the genre that mirrored my family experience the best.”

And like contemporary and classic punk records, “Punk Family” is made of short, fast-paced songs with minimal production— think crunchy guitars, crashing drums, tough-guy vocals. The album’s discernable influences range from minimalist Ramones-esque classic punk in Punk Dad to the disco-punk track Punk Brother Ronny, drawing from The Clash and Talking Heads, to the more modern anthem Punk Sister, reminiscent of Arcade Fire.

Punk Family’s lyrics are straightforward and silly, full of short one-syllable rhymes (in punk lyric tradition). They explore each family member’s character traits and habits— from his mom’s speech habits down to the lentils his brother cooks for dinner. While highlighting both the nerdy and badass about each family member, the songs glibly illustrate each person into an angsty punk hero.

Think about lentils
Think about the hours and
Hours they'll take on the stove
But if he does it right
He's got dinner for weeks and weeks out of that one batch so that's pretty cool

Punk Brother doesn't need directions
He voted in the local election
Bring your bike if you're coming along
Cause Punk brother's just got a bicycle built for one
You know it's built for one
You know it's built for one
You know

Track Name: Punk Sister
I don't have a sister
I don't know what it's like
To miss her

She's never been away
She's never tried to pray
She's never filled her tank
She's never felt ashamed

She's never on her phone
Doesn't worry 'bout going broke
She never bites her tongue
Cause she's never had one

I don't have a sister
I don't know what it's like
To miss her

My sister don't punch with a loose fist
My sister don't ease off her tight grip
Won't give you a kiss
My sister don't smile when she's so pissed
My sister won't give you a kiss cause she doesn't exist

I don't have a sister
I don't know what it's like
To miss her

She never talks to God
And she doesn't get lost
She's never wondering
If it's worth the cost

She doesn't start a fight at the club
Beat the dead horse til ur fed up
She'll never change your mind
And you'll never change hers cause she's completely made up

I don't have a sister
I don't know what it's like
To miss her

Punk Sister
