I’d go gluten free for Zooey D.
Better job this year by whoever picked the pictures for the male finalist.
I’m pretty sure that most people around here has already pre-ordered the (500) days of Summer DVD. That movie was made to cement Zooey Deschanel as the perennial winner of the Girls category. See ya next year, Zooey!
Ugh…they are all the same person haha. I miss the 90s when Albarn would have easily won :)
lots of racial diversity here!
Karen O is half Korean and half Polish. Just sayin’.
Noah Lennox looks like the Jim Parsons from Big Bang Theory.
Alexandra Lawn was robbed.
where the fuck is joanna newsom
Holly Miranda, you fools!
its looks like someone busted a nut in Natasha Khan’s eye.
Angel Deradoorian is such a bitch. If you ever saw her play live, she would kill your boners for a week just with what a terrible person she is. The only way I’d come within ten feet of her is to punish fuck her for being such a bitch.
I feel like there is a story behind this comment. Care to relate it, please?
Not my experience. Bonerworthy.
Yeah, the DPs as a whole don’t have the most jovial stage presence in the history of ever, but I’ve caught no negative vibes (although I may have been blinded by aural rapture). Prove me wrong?
Lol, so much angst.
On Annie’s behalf, I demand a recount! !
I should have lied when I voted and said someone other than Noah Lennox is my indie rock crush. Isn’t it more indie to crush on someone no one else likes?
I am sad for Bradford and Joanna but otherwise these lists are good
Where’s Lady Gaga?! Haha, jk. Justin Vernon would by my male pick and Zooey Deschanel would be my female pick. But I do agree that Annie and Joanna Newsom should have been on there.
I won’t lie; I picked Panda Bear…but why is Chris Bear #10?
…and am I crazy for thinking the guitarist of Grizzly Bear is pretty, uh pretty?
It’s like if anyone does like him they’re embarrassed or something, so I’m just confused.
Oh wait, more than two Grizzlys would just be over-kill.
The whole idea of this list is just “what the fuck?” to me.
Next year, lets include Avey Tare.
Don’t act like you don’t know what I’m talking about.
where the fuck is Tegan Quin??!!! seriously!
I would just like to call this out: Noah Lennox looks like a young man who looks like an old lesbian. I like Chris Bear and Conor Oberst.
I just noticed all of these Grizzly, Panda and Chris Bears. Ha!
I like how this list declares “indie rock” as a qualification but the other lists only subtly imply.
maybe i’m just a bitch but i don’t find any of these people attractive except a small few…
Is it just me, or do all of the guys on the list (except for Justin Vernon) have the same look? Lean, boyish face, dark tously hair…
where is Bradford Cox!?:(
i didn’t realize there was anyone in grizzly bear who wasn’t goofy looking (chris bear)
pretty sad.. you have one of the quinns and not the other.. they look exactly the same.. what do you guys have against one twin and love the other.. really. its not like one of them has a lazy eye
sara is the superior twin. she has better taste, writes better songs, and doesn’t have a lazy eye.
I was going down the list of guys and was sad because I didn’t think my pick made it but there he is #3 ANDREW BIRD yumm!
Victoria Legrand of Beach House!! damn that girl’s voice is sexy.
J Dilla owns all these. Best Hip/Hop producer since Primo. He passed away three years ago and he is the still is the man
Where the hell is Annie Clark?!
i think meric long of the dodos is super dreamy. just putting it out there.
Ahhh, Emily & Zooey. It was a hard choice who to vote for, but I went with my fellow Canadian
Gross. You guys definitely have a type when it comes to guys.
pfft. no Tegan? Sara is not the superior twin. She tries too hard, and her songs end up coming out simpler than Tegan’s because of that. She tries to embellish her songs with a lot of flash. Tegan is funnier, wittier, and hotter :)
Chris Bear and Julian Casablancas should have been higher up on the list. I agree with whoever said Noah Lennox looks like an old lesbian. :P
I’m going to settle this Tegan v. Sara debate:
They’re twins. Picking one is essentially the same as picking the other. Though it would have made more sense to just stick them both on there together.
Also, Wayne Coyne should be on there. Fr’realz. He’s not the hottest man alive, but I’ve never met anyone with more fucking charisma.
they’re not identical twins. and have epically different personalities.
…also, I just noticed that all of the guys have the same exact hair, besides J. Vernon. Just in varying degrees of messy (with Bird’s being the messiest, and Julian Casablancas’ being the greasiest.)
I don’t blame you guys for not voting for her, but my vote went to Anita Robinson of Viva Voce, and it was sealed on the day I saw the video for “From the Devil Himself”. She’s dreamy, and she shreds. Unfortunately, Kevin Robinson is really big and would kick my ass, but that’s OK, because he seems pretty cool too.
I always thought Amber Coffman was cute. But when the DP’s came to town and I saw her do that adorable little dance during Stillness is the Move, I fell in love. Hard. And that voice, my God.
I actually don’t get the whole “Dirty Projectors” craze.
Stillness is the Move sounds like normal girls having a crush on a Indie dude so they try to get him by making a “Indie” song. And the sound irritates me because they seem to over-do the whole “we’re girls!” thing. The high pitched voices, using baby as a lyric, etc. I’m just not into the “JoJo went Indie! :D” sound.
Now, Beach House I can get behind. They’re genuine.
Glad to see a lot of love for Annie and Angel. Though I was rooting for Annie to be #1 (she got my vote), partially because of her underdog status, but mostly because she’s the better artist overall. I met her once, and she was delightful and very humble. (Plus, I’m in love with her guitar.)
GUMMY AWARDS ’10: Can anyone topple the two-time champ and heavy favorite, Zooey Deschanel?
just about all of those girls are on my list as well. and justin, andrew, and ezra on one page? with zooey, emily, and sara? definitely a win. and i’m silently cheering that sara got the spotlight this time. sorry, tegan fans.

‘Punish fuck’? Jesus. I’m sure you’ve had a lot of luck with women.

I love Zooey Deschanel, too bad she looks like a better version of my ex. Kinda ruins it for me sometimes…….Bitch.
Whats up with all these dudes?, with bears in their names on this list…
Karen O is my #1!
Spencer’s kind of a strange pick. I personally think he’s a real cutey, but… Just seems strange. I’m just glad to see Spencer make lists. He’s the best thing since Bowie.
Good topic for your post, thanks.
I was ecstatic to see that Chris Bear made the list, but he’s absolutely gorgeous and should have been way higher.
I enjoy this blog, especially this unique post, because it brings a new aspect into the music world. It is fun to have something like this for people to chat about. I also really enjoy the Gum Mix mostly because everyone wants to hear music as they are reading about music. Love the blog and the convenience of the streaming audio!
Bat For Lashes for the win.
