|Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats
The Night Sweats and front man Nathaniel Rateliff are on a bender, soaked in rousing music, truthful soul and some drinking. Currently on tour, with many of their stops already sold out (aided greatly by a recent television debut on The Tonight Show), try to catch them if you can. Earlier this summer they gave away a three-track EP featuring "S.O.B." and some live cuts. Later they started pitching some singles. Today marks the release of a self titled album that I encourage everyone to pick up.
Having put out two solo records and an EP, this isn't Nathaniel's first rodeo. The Night Sweats however help to transform his music, cocooning his candid words with their energy. Some of the material showing up on, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, has surfaced during their live sets for awhile now. This tends to pay dividends as the songs get a chance to breathe and change in an atmosphere only concerts can create. It also usually means that the band is tight heading into the studio having already cut their teeth on tour.
They play locally on September 9th at The Chapel in San Francisco, sorry it's sold out. Below is a clip of them performing a track off their new album, enjoy.
