George Sarpola is a freelance musician, drummer and educator in New York City. He makes different music. I call it Sarpola. I feel like this was made in a planet very far away and transported here somehow. When you turn this up it feels like you are in a tv game and you have no control.
George is one talented guy. Currently a member of the bands Kaptive and Bother, he has performed throughout the USA with various rock and pop groups, orchestras, concert bands and jazz groups. Quite a creative isn’t he?
”Corporate Anthem” from George Sarpola is such a different experience. Taken off his new album ”Fugue State”. he is such a ground-breaker with his music and blends so many instruments and samples that gives me so many different emotions. I feel a bit paranoid at times as I wonder if I’m actually real. This has to be music for a video game or movie, its that good. Somehow I get the feeling that George is telling us not to be robots and instead breakout and live our own lives, away from the mainstream. This music won’t be everyone’s cup of team but it will intrigue and blow your mind.
