Saaremaa and Music

This past weekend I spent an amazing 3 days on Saaremaa with Liisa. The weather was awesome, right around freezing and sunny. You couldn't ask for a better weekend. I took lots of pictures but it appears that I left the cable for my camera in Toronto. Not sure what I'll do now but I'll figure out a way to get pictures uploaded.

One thing that I've been doing a lot of lately is downloading new music and taking full advantage of my iPod (I even uploaded a movie to it which is pretty cool). Some of the stuff that I've been listening too recently are:

Clap you hands and say yeah: This album rocks in my opinion. The lead singer may have the world most annoying voice but there is somthing about this album that gets my blood pumping.
Arcade Fire: Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels) may be the best song I've heard in years enough said.
Artic Monkeys: These 19 year olds are the hottest thing in the UK since the Beatles. They set the record for highest selling debut album beating such names as Franz Ferdinand, Oasis, etc. Naturally any band that is this hyped is bound to disapoint. I'll let you decide.
Black Rebal Motorcycle Club: Yes, they were featured in a recent episode of The O.C.
The Shins: They are not new, but I haven't heard them much. Pretty decent.
We are Scientists: Another indie rock/Strokes-esque band that has a little something to offer.

There's a lot more but that enough for now. I suggest you give each of these at least 1 listen to.

Next week I'm off to London for work, then Stockholm to visit Liisa. Hopefully by then I'll have figured out some way to upload pictures.
