Floating Action with Lackadaisies plus Carbon Poppies
"Floating Action is the sound of the space between worlds...it is still sunny out but you can also see the moon."--Jim James, My Morning Jacket
"...gorgeous melodies and scrappily fuzzed out tones that radiate a vinyl warmth that somehow immediately instills a feeling of nostalgic happiness." --Sean Moeller, Daytrotter
Floating Action is Seth Kauffman, a red bearded Blue Ridge mountain-biking brother who has made five records on which he writes, records and plays all the instruments himself. Floating Action's fifth, most soothing offering, Fake Blood, was released September 4th and championed by none other than Jim James of My Morning Jacket via his label, Removador Recordings & Solutions (as a co-release with Harvest Recordings in Asheville, NC).
The music of Floating Action reflects the relativity and natural laws gleaned from immersion in Kauffman's abundant outdoor activities, as well as a high standard for originality and overall quality. Seth is a pro-level mountain biker and snowboarder who longboards, hikes and spends way too much time on trails in the mountains. Jim James became a fan of Seth's previous record Desert Etiquette - an album he calls "a relatively unknown masterwork of our times."
Floating Action has previously toured with Band of Horses, Dr. Dog, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals, Delta Spirit and has a select date in December supporting My Morning Jacket in New York.
