Published Sep 07, 2015As fans of the popular podcast Who Charted? can attest, Howard Kremer is one of comedy's true weirdos. But like fellow oddballs Reggie Watts or Kate Micucci, Kremer proves that weirdos often make great musicians. After year of putting out hip-hop albums under the name Dragon Boy Suede, Kremer's undying love of summer (or summah, as he calls it) prompted the New Jersey comedian to release a series of records celebrating his favourite season.
On Summahtology, the fourth album in this series, Kremer has crafted ten tracks that meld Dragon Boy Suede's flow with his sunny vocal style. Although he may have written sharper material in the past ("Beach Combah," "Gu Cruise"), Summahtology shows Kremer at his creative peak. Much of the credit goes to producer Brett "Stard" Morris, whose eccentric production techniques helps give tracks like "Summah Says," "Crush It Like Quint" and "Pelican Squelch" a musical personality most comedians would kill to exude. Summahtology is a classic weirdo release that this weirdo was born to create. (Howard Kremer Bandcamp)
