We’re back this week with a full show AND an interview with Napoleon Dynamite & How I Met Your Mother composer John Swihart!
The Berkelee-trained Swihart fuses ‘70s funk with electronica for the movie, providing a musical backdrop that expertly plays alongside the comedy, yet simultaneously allowing the jokes to breathe when necessary. Produced by Lorne Michaels, comedy Staten Island Summer unites SNL alums Cecily Strong, Bobby Moynihan, Fred Armisen, Will Forte, and Kate McKinnon for a hilarious coming of age comedy about two lifeguards on a mission to throw the biggest party of the summer.
Swihart has provided memorable scores for a number of coming-of-age, youth-driven projects, ranging from classic cult comedy Napoleon Dynamite, to Fox’s Red Band Society, and the Michael Cera film Youth in Revolt. Swihart scored the CBS’s landmark comedy How I Met Your Mother.
