It's fashionable to rag on the nme.
it's also fun and entirely apt.
especially when they begin to gently bum a new buzzband/artist (Who's infact been around on blogs and mmmmspace for dogs years.
Case and point.
Ellie Goulding.
Remember Starry eyed?
Remember that cover of Black and gold from a year a half ago?
Probably not.
They were boring and sounded like rejected B-sides from that X-factor loon Diana Vickers.
So what has she released now?
More boring, B-side soundalike tracks?
Oh but you like them now?
How Flippant.

What's more annoying is that dear old marina & the diamonds (labelmates might I add) is having her already dimming light snatched away.

Same Label.
Same aesthetic (Aren't I kooky indie girl etc)
Both have some stunning remixes compiled.
Different sound.
