The votes are in, and now we are pleased to share the results of our annual readers’ poll, the Gummy Awards. We asked you to select your favorite music of the year, and in that regard there’s a good deal of overlap with our own favorite albums and songs of 2017 — especially at the very top of the albums race, where #1’s margin of victory over #2 was even more ridiculously slim than in our staff poll. But as usual you readers asserted your own distinct taste as well, particularly your enduring love for critically acclaimed big-tent indie rock. Below, review your selections and congratulate yourselves on your good taste. And as always, thank you for participating in the community we’ve cultivated at Stereogum; it’s a pleasure to have such an engaged and enthusiastic readership.
