Looks like Jimmy Fallon has a new musical obsession. Last night on The Tonight Show, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats made their TV debut. Before the band took the stage, however, Fallon introduced them by beckoning the at-home audience to “Turn your TVs up! Turn your computers up! Whatever you’re watching this on, turn it up!”

Rateliff and his band of soulful rockers then knocked out an incredible performance of their new single, “S.O.B.”, and Fallon just couldn’t contain himself. “Soulful!” He screamed. “Soul-Ful! That’s the way to do it right there!” Even the crowd agreed, giving the Denver outfit a standing ovation.

Check out the band’s moving, shaking, and powerful barroom soul performance below.

Oh, and Fallon wasn’t done heaping on the praise (btw, we like ’em too):
