Tim Regan first gained notice with Oh No Oh My, an Austin indie-pop group that turned heads back in 2006. Since then, he’s veered stylistically, from the more psychedelic Antenna Shoes and Snowglobe to scoring a handful of documentaries. Now he returns with Texas Never Whispers, a band that takes its name from a Pavement song but owes its pop-rock roots to groups like Wilco and the Jayhawks. Their self-titled debut swings between country inflections and piano-led ballads; “Midnight Companion” sits halfway between these poles while still delivering a few wry one-liners. Download the song below and catch Texas Never Whispers’ album release show Saturday night at the Mohawk, starting at 9 p.m. on the inside stage.
