lykke-li

2012 was a good year for indie crushes. We discovered some new ones, found new reasons to love the old ones, and got plenty of music and visuals to foster growth in the one-way relationships that we have with some of indie music's most talented ladies. Here are our 10 indie crushes (or more like 10 of our many indie crushes) of the year.

    I like to think that we both look up at stars and kind of “feel” each other’s existence. Once when I saw her live I’m pretty sure we made eye contact. But like, is she aware of me? No, I highly doubt it.
