Despite the rain, the 11th annual Forecastle Festival included memorable sets by Shovels & Rope, Foxygen, Killer Mike and El-P, Robert Plant and others.
Floating Action’s had a busy year, which hasn’t left much time for local shows. Luckily, the band’s taking a breather from the road this weekend and treating local fans to the soulful, lo-fi surf rock it’s been blasting up and down the East Coast all summer and fall.
For weeks, Xpress has been updating you on Floating Action’s forthcoming record and high-profile brushes with fame. Now, fans can finally see what all the (most recent) fuss is about. The band’s latest LP, Fake Blood, is officially in stores.
Last week, Xpress reported that My Morning Jacket’s Jim James remixed a Floating Action track. Apparently, that wasn’t enough to satisfy James’ yearning to get in on the Action.
