Top Five Shoegaze Records of the Week.

One of the cool things we'll be doing on When The Sun Hits is a weekly posting of our 5 most-listened-to shoegaze/dream pop albums - classic or new, whatever we happen to have been spinning obsessively each week. Not only are we nerdy list-makers, but it's a good way to get weekly exposure to new and old shoegaze bands. Clicking on the links will take to you to a wealth of info about the bands and their labels, the sites to buy and hear the music, and more! Check out the first and second Top 5 posts for previous recommendations! Keep gazing!
