D+, "Don't Worry About Me"

Today, I need something earnest and unadorned, so I'm turning to the K Records.

D+ was a band formed by Bret Lunsford, the guy not named Calvin Johnson in Beat Happening, and the then much-younger Karl Blau and Phil Elverum. Their 1998 album Dandelion Seeds is a mild, modest affair that seems so totally unoccupied with the passing of time and appearances, and I find that refreshing in this moment.

Start there and then try the rest of the LP.
