Jimbo Mathus has blazed a singular path as a singer, songwriter, guitarist, producer and shaman for 40 years, recording and releasing more than 300 songs that are a testament to his hoodoo craftsmanship and to the sounds, sights and spirits of his inspirations in the deep South. His new album, Incinerator, out April 5 via Mississippi's Big Legal Mess Records, is the epitome of that art - an incendiary reflection of his world in music. The new album was recorded in a burst of inspiration, with all but overdubs cut in just two days in Water Valley, Mississippi's Dial Back Sound. Surprisingly, Mathus, who has produced dozens of albums, decided to hand the controls to Bronson Tew and Drive-By Truckers bassist Matt Patterson, who co-own Dial Back, and opted to play piano instead of his trademark guitar. Rising Americana star Lilly Hiatt guests on the album, as does violinist Andrew Bird, who also plays in Squirrel Nut Zippers with Mathus. We're stoked to welcome Jimbo Mathus back to Grimey's for an in-store performance on May 22nd, at 6PM.
