Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats is a soulful American band formed in 2013 by singer and songwriter Nathaniel Rateliff
. Some artists undergo reinventions. What Nathaniel Rateliff accomplishes on his first LP with the Night Sweats — transforming himself from folk troubadour to funky soul bandleader — is a revelation. Rateliff comes on like Van Morrison fronting Booker T. & the MG's, reviving the glory days of the Stax label.
