    He looks like the reincarnation of '50s folk singer Burl Ives.

    Love these guys and it's a great tune, but I would love to see them play one of their less mainstream songs on these shows. I suppose that might be the network/ record label influence.

    Been listening to Nathaniel here in the UK for the last 6 mnths. Him and the dead south are the best music coming from that side of the Atlantic at the moment.

      A few years ago while listening to NR*TNS, RU-clip snuck in some TDS and I've been hooked ever since. Both are amazing live, so fun.

    Jensen Ackles' cover of SOB is frickin' amazing that it's basically Dean Winchester making his musical debut.

    Thank you, Stephen and the Late show management for bringing them back.
    Hear SOB on your show and got instantly hooked. You Worry Me reminded me of their new album and this just put my day into perspective.
    Thank you.

    Saw them live at the Edmonton Folk Music Festival and have been hooked since. Listened to every song I don't know how many times. This is one of my favourite, leaves me choked up. The popular choice is "SOB(which is awesome don't get me wrong)." I like "Howling At Nothing" the most. I will definitely see them if they ever come this way again. I hope they come to the 40th anniversary of the EFMF next year! They killed it!

      Yeah, also reminiscent of Dylan from early '70's with that rich "The Band" backing sound.

      absolutely, with a bite of alabama shakes.
      lyric's are more dividable than van's, who's not so on the nose.

      Remember when Lipton Iced Tea started using S.O.B. for its ads?
      Because that's what you want associated with your iced tea: a song about the horrors of alcohol addiction, that even includes a perfect description of delirium tremens!
