It is intriguing to listen to an album and consider that what you hear is a band's closest effort to enscapsulate their truth, to convey their experiences and inner worlds via instrumentation. The anchor of local project dKOTA, Dustin Johnsen, provides tangible insight into this process with an online video charting his journey in creating new album The Self-Dyssimilar. A montage of atmospheric meandering accompanies dKOTA's music, giving images of the album's creation: sped-up footage of the familiar sights of biking around Portland, there's the I-84 overpass, Big Pink in the distance—followed by extended scenes of band members experimenting with sounds in an expansive room draped with Persian rugs and guitars, working thoughtfully at articulating their expression for an as-of-yet unknown audience.
