A Newbury Comics exclusive color vinyl pressing. All proceeds go to Save Our Stages
Improv4Humans is known as the best improv comedy podcast in the universe. That’s what you would expect from host Matt Besser, co-founder and legend of The Upright Citizen’s Brigade Training Center, and his limitless supply of all-star guest improvisers every week. What is lesser known is that in a quest for comedic inspiration, I4H has quietly amassed a vast catalog of some of the best, most intimate and well produced live musical performances ever captured on a podcast, by some of the most creative and exciting artists in music today.
Radio performances too often sound disposable, and podcasts are known to sound like a bedroom hobby, but producer and longtime Earwolf lead engineer Brett Morris saw an opportunity in the medium to produce each live performance more like a record than a broadcast. From classic singer-songwriters to seven-piece orchestral bands to digital avant garde, each artist sounds at their very best and many fans have considered these performances as essential versions.
For the first time ever, a curated set of these performances is now released on its own, remastered on beautiful colored vinyl with original artwork by Aaron Nestor. Better yet, every sale goes toward supporting #SAVEOURSTAGES, the mission by NIVA to rescue and assist independent venues devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
