“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

“a folk-tinged collection of rock numbers heralded by the single ‘Not What I Came For.’ This [remix] version of the track is a redux from James himself, who has infused the song with a spaced-out, hypnotic sensibility.” – RCRD LBL

Floating Action has released a remix of the song “Not What I Came For” by My Morning Jacket front man Jim James. The original track comes from Floating Action’s fifth album Fake Blood, released on September 4th via Jim James’ label, Removador Recordings & Solutions (as a co-release with Harvest Recordings in Asheville, NC).

RCRD LBL premiered the remix and are calling this version “a redux from James himself, who has infused the song with a spaced-out, hypnotic sensibility.”

“Not What I Came For” (Jim James Remix) is available for free download at and on the label’s site

Floating Action – Not What I came For from Robbie Francis on Vimeo.

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. 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.
