The NME have entered the world of MP3 blogging. If there was anything that would make me consider consigning my blog to the digital dustbin it's this. OK, so Pitchfork did it, but they didn't ram it down anyones throats, and ensure that any MP3's they post are well, good. The NME have done this under the guise of "Radar" or new bands, meaning they're just posting demos by bands that you'll probably never hear of and for good reason. It's annoying that they're doing this, because the NME hasn't stood for any form of journalistic integrity for years - they cover what's new and try and make it hip, not what turns them on.

I'm not going to contribute to their hits by offering a link - you're all clever folk so will be able to find the offending section yourselves.
