I love having people in my life who are just as obsessed with finding new music as I am. This find comes from my cousin Ben, and It’s a pretty darn good find.
Floating Action is from North Carolina, the band consists mostly of one person, Seth Kauffman, who sings and plays everything except the pedal steel on this, his third release Desert Etiquette. The album was written and recorded in a matter of about 4 days, and it shows, but not in a bad way. The songs are loose, but not sloppy, as a whole the album have a very casual feel to it. Both songs included below, “Eye of A Needle” and “Well Hidden” are both chilled out, and laid-back. So get out your chaise lounge, and put your feet up, grab your favorite beverage, and relax to some smooth indie rock.

This guy is awesome! I heard them yesterday on my AudioVroom app on my iPad. Found him on this blog! I love the indie rock feel- great stuff!
This guy is very interesting. Thank you for giving me audio! That’s cool how you found this guy through your cousin. That’s the best part of finding new music. I am always finding new things through family and friends and just simple research. Awesome job.
Played with these guys in February. Bought the (self-titled) record and didn’t listen until this summer. Definitely makes my top five records that I have found this year, although it came out in 09′. Check it out. Seriously. Sooo good.
