I hate the term "girl crush" because who gives a shit if, as a woman, your crush is a girl or a boy? That said, I have a total no-pronoun-necessary crush on multi-instrumentalist Thao Nguyen of Thao and the Get Down Stay Down. She is, at once, folk, punk, feminine, and badass. She has collaborated with Mirah and the Portland Cello Project, and she totally nailed a cover of "Push It" with Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein as her backup band. Be my best friend, okay, Thao? We can make cupcakes and listen to records and it'll be like an episode of Girls, but without the insufferable conversation and constant bad decisions. MEGAN SELING
