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.

Enjoy Volume 1 of improv4humans4music. Album includes a digital download.
