I don't know about you guys, but I've been trying real hard to get myself an indie crush for years now. I know, I know: there has to be a better adjective than indie, right? But you know what I'm talking about
. Yeah, yeah: Beyoncé's smoking hot; we get it. And Britney Spears did this photo shoot for the New York Times a few years ago that blew me away (there's a good pun in there somewhere). But I'm talking about the kind of crush that has cred.
And it's not that I haven't been looking. I tried Meg White for a while, but she's all knockers, no personality. And I tried Karen O, but she's just not a hottie. (Pictures of her were still scarce for a while after Albert Hammond, Jr. wore that pin on SNL, so for a long time I had a pretty intense aural crush with just a few face-covering photos to aid me.) And what are my other choices... M.I.A.? Lady Sov? Joanna Newsom? Yeah, Newsom's a maybe. And alright, alright, there's always Chan Marshall, but she's a model now (don't believe me?
), so I feel like she's up there with the professional hotties. And Regina Spektor is really cute, but I'm pretty sure she's way too old for me. The girls from Fannypack? Uh-uh.
So here comes Uffie
. I can't take her seriously, and I can't say that her rapping is any good. But the lyrics are certainly adorable and hilarious, and the electro beats complement their uh, sensuality. She's on Ed Banger records
, for all you kids who keep track of that. (Maybe you know labelmates Justice
.) Oh, and did I mention that she's a genuine, certified smoking hot girl? Have doubts? That's her up there in that photo. And some Italian magazine that seems really cool, but most of the content of which I can't read has a bad ass photo shoot
of her. So go knock yourselves out (that good pun is just too obvious).
She doesn't have an album out, and there are just a handful of singles she's released, but she's my official indie crush. Who's yours? I think girls have a few more options than us fellas, but I'd be happy to get comments from both sexes.
And in addition! I'm going to post what I believe is Uffie's total output to date. If not total, it's certainly the vast majority. Voici:Uffie - "Pop the Glock (Original Mix)"
