The Franklin Kite: Explosions and Batteries

Last night I went to the CD release party for a co-workers band: The Franklin Kite. Their new EP “Explosions and Batteries” is available on iTunes (search “The Franklin Kite”) and Amazon for those that are interested.

Explosions and Batteries

My co-worker asked me to help record some drum parts on my Zendrum and of course I couldn’t say no. I loved their first EP a lot and was excited to be able to do some music again. I played one of the 3(?) drum tracks in Antoinette and provided the drums from around 2:26 till the end on Pilot. The main reason he asked someone to come in and play is that he wanted some fills on the end of Pilot. The result was pretty awesome. The parts have been edited, I just slammed on my Zendrum for a while and John edited out some bad spots and did some arranging of the parts. I was really happy with the results. Seeing the concert last night definitely makes me want to record some songs this weekend!

Overall I’m very glad I got to be a part of this EP since I’m a big fan of the music. I’m enjoying every song on it and can’t wait to hear what these guys come up with next!
