Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats is the debut album by American R&B soul group Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, released in August 2015 via Stax Records.

Nathaniel Rateliff is an American musician, singer and songwriter from Hermann, Missouri. Known for his folk-based, pensive songwriting, Rateliff has garnered attention with Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, the soulful R&B combo he formed in 2013.

This self-titled offering is a hard-swinging, house-rocking affair that draws heavily on vintage R&B, soul, and proto rock & roll. This isn’t a new direction for Rateliff so much as a reconnection to music he’s been singing from the start. It’s a natural sound for Rateliff, and these tunes have a vintage air about them in the trebly guitar riffs, bright sprays of brass and punchy basslines, circling tightly around rock-solid drums.

Atop such a powerful engine, Rateliff glories in his role as soul shouter. He belts out the lyrics with sweaty abandon on opener “I Need Never Get Old” over a boogaloo guitar part and stacked layers of horns, and builds “S.O.B.” from wordless, hummed vocals and handclaps to a bluff, full-throated roar.

That same commanding presence is evident throughout, though Rateliff slows down occasionally, too, without losing any of his passion. He strikes a melancholic tone on “Wasted Time”, with waves of steel guitar, while electric piano and the faint glimmer of comped guitar chords lend a torchy feel to “I’d Be Waiting” as Rateliff croons in the middle ground between confident suitor and wistful fantasist.

Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats is an engrossing album, and while the singer and his band are drawing on a classic form, their interpretation makes for an exciting and contemporary sound.

The album peaked at #17 on the US Billboard 200, #1 on the US Billboard Folk Albums, #27 on the UK and #19 on the Australian Albums charts.

Check out the singles from the album: “S.O.B.”; “Look It Here”; “I Need Never Get Old” and “Wasting Time”.

This LP record is on black vinyl with a printed insert, pressed in Europe.
