Jimbo Mathus
Confederate Buddha

Jimbo Mathus - Confederate Buddha

Having been part of the Squirrel Nut Zippers, the South Memphis String Band and putting Buddy Guy's musical house in order, Mississippi's own Jimbo Mathus is back with Confederate Buddha. It's an eclectic amalgam of Southern blues, white country, soul and rock-n-roll. The idea behind the album reflects Jimbo's interest in regional folklore and art forms: 'I was finding these weird country people - oracles, rural sages who are so wise and of the past projecting an image of both peace and rebellion.' It's the first album he's written and recorded with a specific band in mind with a sound that's coherent, rock solid and down-home all at once.
