BEST 7-INCH 

Replay Records' Hips/Hospital Ships split

Critics' Choice

In addition to cheap beer and live music, Lawrence's Replay Lounge has been serving up occasional 7-inch singles for the past two years through its in-house label, Replay Records. Most cleave to a garage and punk aesthetic (Up the Academy, Mouthbreathers, Radkey), but our favorite from the past year falls more in the indie-rock mold: a split release shared by the Hips and Hospital Ships. We totally dig the funky keyboard riff on the Hips' "Yoo Hoo's Binoculars," which lends the song a friendly indie-soul groove. And we prefer the ramshackle, more acoustic version of Hospital Ships' "Come Back to Life" to the one that appeared on the band's excellent album from this year, Destruction in Yr Soul. Hospital Ships recently packed up and moved to Austin, but at least the Replay gave us a time capsule to remember this moment in the Lawrence scene.
