Few artists compare to Nathaniel Rateliff, with his confessional songs folk style which are often wrought with hurt and struggle. Now working with The Night Sweats, the music brims with soul and a joyful gospel rapture. The songs have a dark primal aspect to them, contrasted wonderfully by the bright sound making their self-titled album more than just music, but a journey to be experienced.
Stax Records have made a great signing, as the record truly fits the legendary Memphis label with moments of truly deep soul. The band also brings a funk and rapturous beat making an oddly wonderful celebration of hurt, despair and insecurity.
Introspective, but not self-indulgent, the raw boned songs rattle along drawing the listener in for a cathartic ride. Rhythm, blues and soul. Melodic horns, jazz drums and rattling piano. All fronted by the wonderful man with the charisma of a true great. Although their sound maybe be boisterous and excitable, it always remains somehow personal and intimate, perhaps due to the truly revealing lyrics as sung by Rateliff.
