I would love to sit down over a cocktail and talk music, but more importantly talk life with Nathaniel Rateliff, his music never ceases to amaze me. Musically there’s nothing too special most of the time, but his voice matched with his lyrics make you “feel” and want to groove with him.
If you’re looking for Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats, this is not what you’re going to get, but instead you will get a a very nice folk rocky type of album with some great slow dancing tunes that incorporate guitar with orchestra quite well and tastefully. From “What A Drag” all the way through “Rush On” each track has something different to offer. It’s both heartfelt and pure rock n roll while also towing the line of folk, but definitely staying away from the auto-tuned indie scene.
If you’re a fan of Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats, you’ll probably enjoy this album as much as I did, but if you’re also a fan of classic rock and good storytelling, I imagine you’ll also really enjoy this one. I might even suggest plugging in your turn table and sipping a glass of wine during a good book so you can really immerse yourself into it.
