The word "indie" as a blanket term for any kind of "independently produced music" has lost all its relevance - if indeed it had any to begin with. It's not just that the distinction between production quality of the "majors" and the "indies" is getting increasingly blurry. And it's not just that the majors have long ago hijacked the term and applied it to their version of edgy and slightly garage-band-sounding rock, thereby confusing everybody - except the real indies themselves. The real reason why the term "indie" is now more of a hindrance then a help to you the indie musician, is, ultimately, because the punters don't know any different. For this reason alone, promoting your music as 'indie' is self-defeating.
