1. Short for independant, usually music, as in independant label, independantly produced, etc. It DOES NOT have a particular sound since it really only refers to label and production (bands such as Modest Mouse
and Of Montreal
sound nothing alike, yet they are both indie).
2. Can also refer to stores or businesses that aren't part of chains.
3. Listeners are not flowery scene kids, as is generally believed. However, listeners MAY be stoned
4. Is awesome.
Wal-Mart is to indie as brussel sprouts is to tasty.
