Song of the Day: The Textones – No Love In You

The Textones, a group consisting of music lifers, has been around since the late ’70s. Led by Carla Olson, the group was influenced by Classic Rock and Country Rock of the ’60s as well as Tom Petty, The Rolling Stones, giving them that perfect mixture of Heartland Rock and West coast Laurel Canyon. Formed in Austin by Olson and Karen Valentine who went on to join the Go Go’s, this is one of those groups that were very much critically acclaimed and criminally ignored. The debut album after Valentine left the band and the addition of a saxophone player, 1984’s Midnight Mission, is a Roots Rock, Stonesy lost masterpiece.
