    Obscure to all but the most avid soul music fans, Detroit native Nathaniel Mayer released his second comeback album in 2007. With the assistance of a young and hungry backing band that features members of Outrageous Cherry, the Dirtbombs, and the Black Keys, Mayer cooks with a bit more grease in the pan on WHY DON'T YOU GIVE IT TO ME than on his 2004 Fat Possum release, I JUST WANT TO BE HELD. Black Keys' guitarist Dan Auerbach lays down gritty, reverb-drenched riffs over a simple pulsing groove, letting Mayer unleash his haunting Howlin' Wolfe-style rasp. This album stands proudly alongside--and maybe slightly to the left of, given the presence of a slightly acid-tinged vibe--the finest classic soul comeback albums of the early 2000s.
