Top 5 Records of the Week.

Welcome to another installment of When The Sun Hits' weekly obsessions. You may have noticed that Danny and I took a couple of weeks vacation from our weekly Top 5 postings, because we both absolutely needed to take a break and hit our proverbial reset buttons. But now we are back, and have tons more new stuff in store for you, especially regarding the evolution of the blog and other exciting things...but more on this very soon!

For the uninformed, our weekly Top 5 Records lists include older and classic LPs and EPs for you to revisit, as well as brand new releases, so that you can keep your finger on the pulse of new artists and still rock out to classics. 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.

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.
