Out just this month is a full-length self-titled album submitted by Washington's Text Message. Makes for a good listen, especially at work where the eccentric of my musical selections solicits awkward glares from the customers. Text Message isn't a tame band, but they've got a board appeal to their lo-fi indie rock. Easily shared with friends or listened to in company. Nonetheless they don't hold back. There are tracks where it gets a bit more loud and out there, just enough to keep the album interesting and fun. Lastly, there's something about the vocalist's voice, eerieely familiar sounding to me, in a good way.
