[ALT-ROCK] Floater’s last release, 2010’s Wake, is a perfect example of why the band is such a popular draw. Simultaneously filled with roaring guitars, frenetic drums and all the cool of a ’70s funk band, the album offers listeners a little bit of everything. Singer-bassist Rob Wynia and co. channel their inner Weezer on the “Hash Pipe”-esque “You Taught Me,” rip through the power-pop number “Cannonball” at an appropriately quick pace and turn “Broken Toy” into one hell of a groovy rock jam. And while they get serious on the mid-tempo track “White Dress,” with lyrics like “Tina wore a white dress/She didn’t know it was a funeral,” the gleeful way Wynia shouts “Olé! Olé!” on the raucous, psychedelic “Matadors” almost makes you forget about such introspective moments.
