FLOATING ACTION’s Fake Blood Out Today on Removador
Watch The New Video “Not What I Came For” + Free Track Download
“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, is being released today, 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 band released the video for “Not What I Came For” the fourth track from Fake Blood, to the public today along with a free download of the song at Removador.com.

When asked about the significance of both English and French subtitles in the video, Seth Kauffman explains, “the words to that song are REALLY good, and I don’t want them to go overlooked. So [subtitles are] one obvious way to do that.. and the French part, maybe I’d been watching weird old French Francoise Hardy TV performances, so the idea was to make it like you stumbled across this on a French public access channel in 1981.”
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 released four albums to date, two of which were released on Park the Van Records.
Floating Action has previously toured with Band of Horses, Dr. Dog, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals, Delta Spirit and has announced select dates this Fall, see below for the latest routing (more to be announced soon).
