Best Of 2005

BEST SHOT AT MODERN-ROCK RADIO: Soulfound

They came from Gainesville a few years back, bringing solid but somewhat generic modern rock. Since then, they’ve refined the hookier, more youthfully energetic aspects of their sound to the point that you can’t listen to their latest EP, The Lives We Lived So Far, and not wonder why they’re not booting shite like Nickelback and Hot Action Cop out of the Top 5 at 5 on a regular basis. Maybe they will before long, if they can resist the temptation to get all screamo on our asses. www.soulfound.net. - Scott Harrell
