Jimbo Mathus's latest work, Confederate Buddha, was easily one of the most overlooked roots albums of 2011. Don't worry, we sort of slept through it too, but that just means you can make up for that with us by checking him out Saturday night at the Continental Club, with opening act Shinyribs. You more than likely know Mathus's name from his work with the Squirrel Nut Zippers in the '90s and Buddy Guy in the early '00s. Along with his band, the Tri-State Coalition, Mathus recorded the Creedence Clearwater Revival and The Band-ish mash that is Buddha with an eye on the spirituality of his native Mississippi, framed by the region's blues sound and mythology. "Too Much Water" could be about a natural disaster like Hurricane Katrina, or a romantic match gone wrong. Either way, there will be scars.
