Here Come Dots might be a clever anagram derived from the words "the Morse code," but you won't find the Portland band telegraphing any punches on their 2013 album A House in the Country.  The group proves its penchant for crafting evocative and ethereal moments throughout the release, and you can find it on full display in a haunting and mysterious track like "In the Country." The album's layered production adds an alluring glisten under the hood, and this dense and rewarding structure gives the songs a little more to reveal each time you give them a spin. Bright Is Black, the latest local shoegaze outfit to rise from the ashes of the Silent Numbers, opens things up. Check out the brand-new cassette EP, Dust, for a taste of ambient pop that's equal parts hushed and blustery. CHIPP TERWILLIGER
