Floating Action - 50 Lashes

Floating Action is a dub reggae band from the early 70s with a heavy Motown blues and soul influence. The only facts that make that statement questionable are the young white American male on lead vocals and the band's 2009 debut.

After two solo albums, Seth Kauffman formed Floating Action, whose self-titled debut released in April. The album is an island pleasure, with a vintage Caribbean sound. Kauffman doesn't try to imitate a 70s black singing voice, sticking with his authentic 00s singer-songwriter voice, but the band does their part perfectly, and somehow it works.

The self-titled debut is out now on Park the Van Records. A vinyl LP of the album and the first single are expected in July.
