Top Five Shoegaze Records of the Week.

If you are new to When The Sun Hits, one of the cool things we have been doing 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, second, third, and fourth previous weekly posts, if you missed them!
