    Best Recovery - Al's Not Well

    Best New Band - Chlorine

    Best Hell Raisers - The Holy Rollin' Hellfires

    With song titles such as "1 Horse Town" and "Cowboy Ways," the Holy Rollin' Hellfires are a little bit country, but a bootload of rock. After a series of rhythm-section changes, the Beach-based Hellfires solidified, released an eponymous CD, and can ...

    Best Electronica Release - Phoenecia

    "The tyranny of the beat" is an apt description of Miami's club culture, a world where creativity, envelope pushing, and soulfulness are increasingly being shoved aside in favor of generic four-on-the-floorisms. Phoenecia stands as one of a handful o...
