Thomas Luminoso / Eternal Garb / Sleep Number / Cerulean Moth
THOMAS LUMINOSO: On his 2021 album Palace Morning, Nashville songwriter and singer Thomas Luminoso recasts the styles of Syd Barrett, Kevin Ayers and Arthur Lee as modern rock. Palace Morning is an elusive record — you can hear traces of the kind of blues licks Barrett and Lee used in their ’70s work, but tunes like “I’m Just a Particle” and “Marc Greenway” remain somewhat opaque, which may mean Luminoso is more interested in writing creative pastiches than he is in composing songs for the ages.
