In the summer of 2003, Oakland based Audio Out Send released its first full-length album, "...or Does it Explode?" For the group, the album marked a culmination of two and a half years of living and writing. The music of "...or Does it Explode?" ranges from fragile and scattered to dynamic and lush. A full, layered sound flows smoothly between destinations, with a variety of instrumental arrangemnets. Though not always direct in meaning, the songs maintain a level of honesty in their approach.
