Free Friday: Floating Action - "Live At The Grey Eagle"

Floating Action is the moniker for Black Mountian, North Carolina based musician Seth Kauffman and last month he released his new album Fake Blood as a split release between Jim James's (of My Morning Jacket) Removador Recordings And Solutions imprint and Harvest Recordings.  The excellent new album features Kauffman's unique take on folk rock that incorporates everything from Motown to Memphis with ambient passages, soaring melodies, and scrappy surf-rock guitars.  The standout single, "Seized" captures a moment of beauty with a bouncy rhythm and some soulful guest vocals from Maxine Gwynn.  Another standout, "Not What I Came For" features jangly guitars and a catchy sing-along chorus.  Yet another standout track, "Been Broken" features a pumped-up beat and lilting falsetto vocals reminiscent of Jim James. 

Although it was released in 2008, the 10-song live album,  Live At Grey Eagleis still a great way to get a taste of what Seth Kauffman and Floating Action have to offer.  And you can download it for free on their Bandcamp page.  Be sure to catch them on tour with their two-drummer attack now with their friends and fellow North Carolina heroes Band Of Horses.
