Floating Action

Floating Action is the surprisingly apt moniker of Black Mountain, North Carolina native Seth Kauffman’s musical endeavors. Since releasing two excellent albums under his own name in 2006 (Ting) and 2008 (Research), Kauffman has churned out five wholly unique and gemlike albums as Floating Action, including 2016’s Hold Your Fire. Kauffman, who records most all of the music himself, comes to Paper Tiger with a full band, still supporting the new album (as well as indie rock outfit Rogue Wave). It is difficult to put your finger precisely on the Floating Action sound, at least in part because it never holds still, incorporating elements of reggae, dub, country, blues, and folk-rock into a sweltering yet lackadaisical Southern Gothic groove that is as possessed by eerie stillness as it is by fevered motion. Floating Action’s songs – ominous and impossibly footloose, fierce and delicate, menacing and innocently romantic – seem to twang and wind along like a boat traversing a damn near stagnant river, beneath the boiling milk soup of the Carolina sun.
