Top 5 Records of the Week.

Welcome to another installment of When The Sun Hits' weekly obsessions. Old or new, 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. Sometimes we feature straight up shoegaze/dream pop, sometimes it's what we consider to be proto-shoegaze, sometimes we just do whatever the hell we want - 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.

When The Sun Hits has so much amazing stuff coming up for you in the near future, it's unbelievable. We barely believe it. December is going to be a huge month for us, and we hope you'll be there with us to share it. Keep your eyes on your shoes (and your computer monitors). Cheers!
