The Gummy Awards: Your Top 20 Indie Rock Crushes Of 2012
GUMMYS WEEK CONTINUES. So we’re all on the same page, let’s recap the results to date. Your Best Track is Japandroids’ “House That Heaven Built,” your Best Video is M.I.A. and Romain Gavras’s “Bad Girls,” your Best New Artist is DIIV.
And now, we look inside your hearts. Which, when it comes to dudes, is a fairly fickle thing! Compare to last year, and you’ll see almost complete turnover, with only one repeat, in the Mr. Indie Rock results. Your affections have more durability when it comes to ladies, though: Last year’s Top 3 — Zooey Deschanel, Lana Del Rey, and Annie Clark — all show up again this year. Two shifted positions, but your dream girl remains the same. Other notes: Grizzly Bear are abnormally crushworthy, your love for Sufjan is everlasting, and 2012 has both brought us a new Mr. Indie Rock and stretched the definition of the title.
The results start here; ladies first, as always.
UPDATE: Here are the results in all categories:
