Replay Records just put out a split 7-inch with a song apiece from Lawrence acts Hospital Ships and the Hips. It is excellent, and you should totally pick it up. If I'm not mistaken, it's also the first official-ish thing the Hips have released, even though they've been playing together around Lawrence for almost two years. The group includes members of Fourth of July and Drakkar Sauna, and homes in on an oddball stoner-pop vibe that lands on just the right side of goofy. With Monsoon Lazer.
