Maggie Lindemann On Her New Album “SUCKERPUNCH,” SWIXXZ. John Feldmann, Z100, “Dad Rock,” “The Midnight Club”& More

Having accumulated more than a billion streams since she began releasing music, Maggie Lindemann’s sound has shifted in 2020 to align with her own musical inspirations and to motivate a generation of young women searching for their own voices. SUCKERPUNCH is her newly-released studio album, her first full-length album after a series of single, EP and collaborative releases. It undoubtedly builds upon the sharp songwriting and singularly honed-in sounds which Lindemann had established with 2021’s PARANOIA EP, and chronicles a journey of self-discovery over the course of its 15 tracks.

Not surprisingly, the hard-working Lindemann — also behind the growing brand of SWIXXZ — is currently on the road in support of SUCKERPUNCH. She will be performing the album live, in its entirety, later this week during her first-ever Los Angeles and New York headline shows; tickets sold out in two minutes flat for both her Los Angeles show at The Moroccan Lounge on October 15th and New York City’s Mercury Lounge on October 19th. Last month she hosted a Listening Party on Twitter Spaces with influential New York radio station Z100’s Maxwell, who has steadily supported her since 2016.

On October 12, 2022, I had the pleasure of speaking with Maggie Lindemann via Zoom, and audio from that conversation is embedded below for your listening pleasure. More on Lindemann, SUCKERPUNCH, SWIXXZ and/or Lindemann’s tour dates can be found by clicking here, here and here.
