Top 5 Records of the Week.

Welcome to another installment of When The Sun Hits' weekly obsessions. Danny and I plan to get back to making sure these actually happen weekly; 2011 has been massively busy! We have lots of exciting things coming up, including some special content to celebrate the blog approaching 100,000 page views (almost there!), Danny's conversation with Robin Guthrie, some photos of the Sky Drops playing live, and other fun stuff. Awesome.

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.
