Detroit Soul R&B legend Nathaniel Mayer is back with a nice brew of R&B, blues, and funk. "Why Don't You Give It to Me?" features guitarist Matthew Smith of Outrageous Cherry, Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys, bassist Troy Gregory of the Dirtbombs, and drummer Dave Shettler of SSM/The Sights. The result is soul music with a psychedelic rock n' roll heart. "They're a great band, just a real different sound." - Nathaniel Mayer. "A stunning achievement from all involved." - AMG.
"Easily the best album of his career and very possibly one of the best rock/blues/soul/psychedelic albums I've ever heard." - Blogcritics.
"A slap-yourself-silly-it's-so-cool mélange of R&B, blues, funk and psychedelia." - Harp Magazine.
"Instead of borrowing tunes from Van Morrison, Brian Wilson, and Tom Waits, Mayer enlists background musicians from the Dirtbombs, Outrageous Cherry, and SSM. The result: desperate-sounding Detroit garage-soul. - Underground Online. "Not quite 'Electric Mud' - but close." - Westworld.
