mpls ltd is proud to announce the debut of their super split singles club! It's a limited edition series of split 7" vinyl 45s - one side featuring a cool Minneapolis band that you may or may not have ever heard before, while the other side features a band from someplace else in the world that they feel you need to check out. These are a super limited handmade edition of 200 copies only! First up in the series is the Hot Zex / Dayplanner split. HOT ZEX is an amazing group from Siberia that you may recall from ages and ages ago when we sold their debut cassette, followed by a fantastic CD that was released in Japan. They should put a big smile on the face of almost any Jesus and Mary Chain fan. Their song "Cold Sunday Rain" makes it's debut on this single. On the flip side is DAYPLANNER - a band that made a bit of a name for itself while in Saint Cloud, Minnesota. The members moved to Minneapolis and recorded their final EP in 2003 before disbanding, and very few people were fortunate enough to get their hands on one of the only 50 copies. "Sunshine" which is featured here is the title track from that last EP. It has a bit of a warped guitar sound amidst jangly guitars, melancholy guitars, and walls of guitars, all tied together with some tight lo-fi drumming and low-key vocals.
