Big Orange Crayon: if you link to me, I will link to you – such has been the inviolable rule of the blog since it crawled from the pre-Cambrian (or pre-1994, same difference) slime. Those who respect it not are poseurs and finks. This rule applies even if the links page describes NYLPM as “cute” instead of, I don’t know, “dilettantish documentation of the new platinum pop explosion”….on second thoughts, ‘cute’ will do just fine.

Oh yes, the site – nice design, thoughtful and personal music reviews. There’s a diary and stuff too. It’s good. He reviews the new Belle And Sebastian album – oh, those Scottish charmers.
