Slithering Beast began in the summer of 2006 as a solo project for Louisville, Kentucky-based musician and songwriter Nick Dittmeier. Fatigued after fronting several punk bands, the project was an outlet to simplify things and explore the American roots music that birthed rock n roll.
The newest offering, an EP titled Delicious, seeks to break the mold of how Americana music is perceived. It incorporates elements of vintage soul and rhythm & blues, while holding onto their bread and butter of traditional country. Clocking in at just around fifteen minutes, the music gets right to the point with driving tempos and direct lyrics, hell-bent on leaving a lasting impression with the listener.
