The next stop on the Gummys express is Your Top 20 Indie Rock Crushes Of 2011; ten females, ten males, one Gosling. Hit the gallery to check out the winners of this award, truly the people’s champions when it comes to crushes. Just outside the fray: EMA and Wye Oak’s Jenn Wasner for the ladies, Fleet Foxes’ Robin Pecknold, Noah Lennox and Kurt Vile for the fellas. And for the person that voted for ‘311’ in every single category, we’ll relay the (paraphrased) wisdom of an old sage as advice; “Failing to fetch me at first, keep encouraged. Missing me one place search another, [We] stop somewhere waiting for you.”
