The term "DIY" normally applies to punk and hardcore and the term "indie" is overused by bands that don't know how to describe themselves. Both of those terms apply to The Sweet Repose in the truest sense. TSR is an alternative rock band that is completely independent and takes pride doing everything on their own. Musicianship and constant practice has made TSR one of the best bands you have never heard of. The best introduction is a live performance where one can experience their unique and powerful expression of "alternative-indie rock".
