Top 5 Records of the Week.

Welcome to another installment of When The Sun Hits' weekly obsessions. Old or new, undeniably shoegaze or proto-gaze, psychedelic or just plain noisy, we post our top 5 records each week, spotlighting what we've had on constant rotation. It's a great way to give old and new bands exposure, plus we just like making lists, because we are music nerds like that. (You know, studies have show that people with higher intelligence make lists...we're just saying.) Any way you slice it, you get a list of 10 records every week that we think are awesome, influential, and deserving of turning the volume up to 10.

We've archived all of the previous weeks for your browsing enjoyment, which you can find in the right side bar, if you're curious about such things.
