If I could make sense of it all (Eclectic Playlist Series 8.06)

If I could make sense of it all (Eclectic Playlist Series 8.06)

Playing tracks by

Belle and Sebastian, Arthur Alexander, Mates of States, Stanley Clarke, Joan Armatrading and more.

Suddenly it's summer time and, for some of us fortunate ones, it's also rather suddenly semi-normal again. Disconcerting but encouraging. Turns out it's super easy to get used to walking around without a mask and without steering clear of fellow pedestrians. And smiling at people!: if only the anti-mask lunatics had centered their arguments around the idea that being unable to smile at people is really harmful to one's psyche they might at least have been making a reasonable point. As for this month's mix, I'm just going to get out of the way and let it unfold for you. Part of me feels it's a bit of a strange ride, and yet I kind of needed all these songs in this particular order, which happens to be laid out for you in the comments below.
