Here Come Dots, Books on Fate and Quiet Countries

Earlier this year, Here Come Dots released A House in the Country, the full-length follow-up to their 2011 EP Dusk. And House is aces, an overlooked but worthy rock record with smart songwriting and involving production. Opening track "It's a Curse" barrels out of the gate with stratospheric guitar chimes and a tornado-like melody. Meanwhile, "The Plans" steadily builds up a massive sound with a few simple ingredients. Here Comes Dots all came from Southern Oregon, although I don't know if that's the reason their sound has a broader scope than typical Portland guitar-based bands. Still, they fit right in with other great Pacific Northwest rock bands, a region that's downright lousy with them. Make no mistake, though; Here Comes Dots is one worth getting acquainted with.
