>> Stupid November is primarily an instrumental band, covering genres ranging from funk to hip hop, psychedelic rock to jazz, and all kinds of variations in between. They capture many different vibes and emotions with their music by using only their instruments. Stupid November also do a fair amount of improvisational jamming which has become a staple to their live act. They hardly ever play a song the exact same way twice, and they love keeping themselves-- and their audience-- on their toes. This EP, 'Sessions 1,' is a new direction for them. It features two Rochester based rappers, Irate Musik and Modyst Vibes. It is a four-song EP, with three songs written by Irate Musik, and one song written by Modyst Vibes. However, all four songs feature both rappers. Stupid November provides all the backing music, and the entire EP was recorded live at Wicked Squid Studio in Rochester, New York. They had an insanely fun time working on these songs, and it came together very naturally and organically. Listen to 'Sessions I' at the link HERE! - Floated Magazine

Stupid November was formed in 2018, and is made up of members Elijah Skie Richards (drums), Joel Fasy (saxophone & keys),  Charlie Reitz (Guitar), and Alan Pochmara (Bass). Elijah, Joel, Charlie, and Alan met at Fingerlakes Community College in late 2017, and found that with each member hailing from unique musical backgrounds, the music they created together contributed a distinctive energy.

Stupid November draws from genres like Jazz, Funk, Hip-Hop, and Psychedelic Rock, to create a sound that is uniquely them. The band’s music is able to display the up-tempo danceable qualities of Ghost Note and Snarky Puppy, while also contributing tracks that allude to famed Hip-Hop producers DJ Shadow and Madlib with their hypnotically looping, driving feel. These qualities, combined with their shared love for jazz greats like Charlie Parker, creates the band’s signature sound. Stupid November’s groove-based output is crafted to appeal both to the ears of the casual music fan, as well as the seasoned expert.

 Stupid November’s releases include 2018’s Stuck in Traffic EP, which demonstrated the development of Stupid November’s unique style, 2019s Do not disturb, their debut album, single monday featuring mary fator, and sessions 1 featuring irate musik and modyst vibes.
