Who's Your Indie Crush?

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)"

Uffie - "Pop the Glock (Sebastian Remix)"


Uffie - "Ready to Uff (Mr. Oizo Mix)"

Uffie - "Ready to Uff (TV Track)"

Uffie - "Hot Chick"

Uffie - "In Charge"

I can't have a crush on anyone but my girlfriend, or she'll beat me. Oh, but Rob's mom is pretty hot.

Come on. Someone had to say it.

I thought the ladies of The Pipettes were right up there with Jenny Lewis for many indie wankers...I could be wrong, they are foxy though. Also the girls from The Like are hot in that Lolita kinda way.

Catherine Pierce of The Pierces (but they're sorta folk, they probably don't count) takes the cake though. Damn, and I'm a straight girl.
