Nathaniel Rateliff Finds His Rhythm With The Night Sweats
“He has long been one of Denver’s most recognizable musicians, and now, armed with a thrilling band called the Night Sweats and a record deal with Stax Records, and coming off an unforgettable performance on The Tonight Show, he and his name are poised to stretch far beyond the familiar haunts of Broadway.”
"...the Night Sweats’ self-titled debut swells and shifts across the musical spectrum. From the rousing opener, “I Never Get Old,” to the introspective “Wasting Time,” the album takes listeners down many roads. Still, at their core, the songs encapsulate Rateliff’s unique spirit and make it apparent that this project might be the one that he was searching for all along.”
"Rateliff isn't simply resurrecting the ghost of R&B past like some garden-variety neo-soul necromancer: He's out to shake the sheets, sermonize and get downright elemental."
"I first heard this song during a raucous backyard concert where the horn players were literally blowing from the rooftop. With such a memorable first impression, the likelihood that the recorded version could live up to that experience was slim. But with the help of producer Richard Swift, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats have packed the madness and raw energy of that summer evening into their first single. As the band's name implies, this is the perfect soundtrack to a night of sweaty summer debauchery. Now that these Denver favorites are signed to Stax, we're grinding our teeth with anticipation for their debut album, coming in August."
- Jessi Whitten, Colorado Public Radio
"It's like the Blues Brothers meet Johnny Cash At Folsom Prison. He's a ball of energy. Within 30 seconds of listening to his new album, I knew, and we made the offer.” - Jay Sweet
"Having successfully pleased the crowds, there'll be no stopping Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats now as they unveil their autumn tour"
“For now though, this is the stuff that’s reminding me how much joy music can offer. These are the shows at which I’m feeling unselfconscious and ready to cut loose. These are the shows played by people who sound like they’re making music because it’s bursting out of them. And sometimes that, rather than something that confronts the desperate heart of modern life, is what the soul craves.”
