Floating Action is a music band from Black Mountain, NC. It comes from a unique phenomena that happens when leader Seth Kauffman writes, records, and plays all the instruments. He has made five albums so far, Ting, Research, Self-Titled, Desert Etiquette, and Fake Blood (to be released on removador/harvest recordings sept 4th.) Live, there is a full band with two drummers, that is Josh Carpenter (drums/vocals), Evan Martin (drums/vocals), Brian Landrum (guitar/keys/vocals), Mark Capon (bass), Seth Kauffman (guitar/vocals).
Seth is a pro-level mountain biker and snowboarder, who longboards and hikes, and spends way too much time on trails in the mountains. The music reflects the relativity and natural laws gleaned from immersion in these activities, as well as a high standard for originality and overall quality.

THE BALANCE (jim james remix)
this is a song from the floating action album “desert etiquette,” a relatively unknown masterwork of our times. the whole record kills, but this song especially cuts deep for me. i wanted to build on the beautifully haunted feeling the original version gave me, but take it and rework it so it feels perhaps that the listener is suspended deep in a sensory deprivation tank -filled with nutella instead of water, shortly after being put in a trance: being lead to believe you are dancing in crotchless lederhosen across the sunny side of the swiss alps…knowing and believing fully with every ounce of your heart and soul that all of the universe, and all of it’s creatures great and small, is/are/was/were always on your side.
