Floating Action: It's summertime, somewhere

Floating Action's songs belong by the beach, a hazy house party, or a front porch where the breeze can quietly wash the air with cool reverb. Ever since hearing former Dr. Dog drummer Juston Stens' excellent cover of "Don't Stop Lovin' Me Now," I haven't been able to put down the band's rich 2009 debut. Floating Action is more or less a moniker for North Carolina native Seth Kauffman and his music is a soulful and ramshackle collection of influences ranging from Caribbean dub and reggae to ska, a dash of Detroit Motown and the slow drawl of the South.
