Top 10 Albums of 2007 – DJ Koob
null device – excursions
man. 2007 was an awesome year for music. in addition to the three albums from major labels that i’ve talked about previously, it also saw eric oehler and eric goedken of madison’s null device putting out their best album yet. perfectly merging synthpop with influences from world music, it’s pretty safe to say that you’ve never heard anything quite like it and if you haven’t heard of these guys yet, you owe it to yourself to find out more.
Top 10 Tracks
null device – twisting and turning / snow and joy
Both these tracks capture null device at its finest. ‘twisting and turning’ has an etherial femal vocal contrasted with eric oehler’s ‘underworld-inspired’ vocals with an up-beat techno backdrop. ‘snow and joy’ keeps the tempo going and features dan clark playing a fantastic spanish guitar with eric’s initially ‘subdued’ and later ‘soaring’ vocals.
