NME CD: The Soundtrack of Your Summer

NME takes a look back at summer with their freebie The Soundtrack of Your Summer CD, featuring "14 summer festival hits". Didn't make it to many of the UK festivals this year (none, actually). Some of these songs were very familiar, and I'd never heard some of them before. The NME cover boasts "CD includes INDIE supergroup track!" All the words are in caps, but indie is especially huge." The groups on that track are identified in smaller print (The Rakes, Bloc Party, and Towers of London). How does it sound? Does it matter? It's INDIE! (I think it's great). I like the CD overall, and am thinking of starting to use "indie" as slang for "great" or "awesome" just to inject it with some real meaning. Sample uses: 1) "Have you heard the new Rilo Kiley song? It's really indie, man!" 2) Did you see Martha Stewart's Apprentice? "You didn't fail, you just didn't fully succeed." She is so indie.
