Ocharaku Flat-4 KAEDE (Maple) - Page 55

post #811 of 1081

Some pretty serious (read: powerful) rendering of these two tracks by the KAEDEs (simply stunning):

 

http://grooveshark.com/#!/s/Rhythm+Of+The+Heat/4iS5fn?src=5 (the working title of this song for a long time was "Jung in Africa".)

 

http://grooveshark.com/#!/s/Peter+Gabriel/48HIqR?src=5 (from Wikipedia: "The album version of the song is bookended by a recording of the South African song “Senzeni Na?” as sung at Biko’s funeral.")

This one doesn't sound good on the KAEDEs at all — the drumming and strings just sound, er, wrong, even the vocals aren't that great; just the bass, but that obviously isn't enough. I think, on the whole, it's the recording itself that isn't very good.: http://grooveshark.com/#!/s/Believe/3qUWx2?src=5

For some odd reason, I actually like the fact that you are posting music adverse to said cans. Informative. Now I just need to catch up on all these links.

A mighty, mighty fine job by the KAEDEs (layering, timbre and sheer musical impact [is there such a term, I wonder?]): http://grooveshark.com/#!/s/School/1PbD1I?src=5

(** I think someone should rename this thread "The Lone & Very Cheerful Sparrow Thread", aka "The It Hurts So Much This Thread Doesn't Get As Many Views And Posts As Joker Or Dsnuts' Threads Or Eke's Recent ASG-2 Thread Thread" — and then people wonder why I'm soooo grumpy… which, sadly, always leads to me looking soooo much older. **)

I wish I could help as I love these but I am not in a very Kaede mood these days. But it is nice to see a grumpy old sparrow happy with something. So at least you are making me happy, I am not a female sparrow but it's something.

We are all just staring in amazement at the sparrow who is grumpy no more. It's strange that you are not lashing out at us, yelling to get off your lawn.

One of the most engaging tracks I've heard through the KAEDEs — the drumming, the fretless bass (played by one of the most talented bass players I've ever heard, the late Mick Karn), all of the details in the music floating about and gelling wonderfully, superb atmospherics creating a pretty unique mood: http://grooveshark.com/#!/s/Sons+Of+Pioneers+1981/3JPClE?src=5

Here, a few things in common with the above track, but quite a different flavour. The KAEDE is an astonishingly superb phone when it gets it right — and like I said before, it gets it right not so infrequently. How does this IEM manage to extract so much from a track and present it in such a way that causes one to stop because the KAEDEs are demanding undivided attention? http://grooveshark.com/#!/s/Lateralus+11+Reflection/1HbyW?src=5

Here's another track where the KAEDEs just don't cut it — drums sound really off here (thin and just plain bad), bass is fine (just about), the piano (is there a piano here?), the sax is ok-ish; here it's more evident that it's a case of a fairly poor recording (or remaster perhaps) rather than the KAEDEs themselves (basically, it sounds pretty awful): http://grooveshark.com/#!/s/Night+Boat+To+Cairo/3fBrO4?src=5 (the WAV version I have sounds a bit better, but only just a bit)

Ok, I'm blaming this one on the recording.

This is nice. Very nice.

 

(Trying to track it down on MOG with no luck...)

Now this is intriguing. Amazoned.

 

And the Grooveshark sq is pretty not bad.

Sorry for the post per post, but I'm backtracking while I have a few spare moments. Very, very nice through the Kaedes. And compressed audio shouldn't really sound this good.
