Your Daily Lick: Audio Out Send

Sharpen the Hours (Three Ring Records)



This quartet keeps chugging along in the ever-nascent Bay Area indie scene, where half a decade makes you a veteran. "Calling on the Girl," from AOS' 2003 debut, appears here in improved form alongside nine more cuts of morose, sparsely orchestrated indie-pop. Best heard through headphones or in small clubs, Audio Out Send seems bound for at least local success.
