Top 5 Records of the Week.

Welcome to another installment of When The Sun Hits' weekly obsessions. The 100,000 celebration was a blast, thank you to everyone! There are still a few more interesting surprises and announcements to unveil in the coming stay tuned! UBER GAZE. And whatnot.

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.
