Rave’s Fave: Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats – S.O.B. (Live on Jimmy Fallon)


Here’s one of the most buzzed-about late night TV gigs of the year. First of all, this is a song that caught my ear on its own merits. “S.O.B.” Is a raucous, retro feeling tune that will make you want to nod your head if not shake your entire body. Their first network TV appearance was August 6 on Jimmy Fallon’s “Tonight Show”. When Fallon said “a party’s gonna break out right now”, he wasn’t kidding. As the song began with the stocky Rateliff in full beard and looking pretty serious, there was little indication of the mayhem that was about to ensue. He seemed like he’d be more at home on a football field than on a dance floor. When all hell broke loose, we got to see why the show booked them. Rateliff goes into full motion and displays nifty dance steps. See this for yourself, and no wonder the song has been garnering airplay increases based on this buzz. Reviewed by Bruce Rave.
