Baptized in Dirty Water by Chris Thomas King

Appropriate (and free) music for the first anniversary of the Hurricane Katrina Disaster/Fiasco:

Baptized in Dirty Water by Chris Thomas King

It's a slow-burning blues scorcher from Chris Thomas King, whom you might have seen playing bluesman Tommy Johnson in the film O Brother, Where Art Thou? The Louisiana native's latest LP is an ode to his New Orleans hometown and to the destruction wrought by Hurricane Katrina. In our Discovery Download this week, "Baptized in Dirty Water," King sings about the levee that broke and the dirty water that rushed in, forcing many to confront or reevaluate their faith.
