Over his 40-some years, Jimbo has played mandolin in his family band, did the South Memphis early punk scene with Jack Oblivion, co-founded the Squirrel Nut Zippers, been nominated for Grammys (twice, for Buddy Guy’s Sweet Tea and his work with the Dickinsons), worked as a river barge deckhand and wandered the US alone to get a feel for its music and its people. This album could not have been made anywhere other than the Deep South – it’s steeped in the mythology, culture and language of the Mississippi Delta, where Mathus’ family goes back generations.

White Buffalo was recorded at Delta Recording Services Studio with producer Eric “Roscoe” Ambel (Steve Earle) and is a departure for Mathus as he embraces his Southern heritage and the styles of music he heard growing up: country, blues, gospel, rock ‘n’ roll. Mathus and his band conjure some serious musical mojo on White Buffalo, from the Springsteen-esque, mandolin-driven biblical tale “In the Garden,” to the Southern gospel flavor of “Poor Lost Souls,” to the eerie blues of “Run Devil Run” (named for a Lucky Mojo “vigil candle”). It’s an honest, raw album with deep roots in the Delta mud.
