Denton Hatcher crafts music that can only come from the heart of the South. Hatcher, the frontman of the group, hails from Vicksburg, Ms., but spends most of his time traveling between The Big Easy and The Red Stick playing shows and cultivating his sound.
Eucalyptus combines sorrow-drenched vocals, Dixieland blues roots, funky bass lines and, at some points, a lilting surf-rock vibe ("Fool"). However, the album could best be described as blues-heavy Americana.
The tracks are slow and soulful, often blending into one another. This creates a chimerical, hazy atmosphere for the listener to easily get lost in. However, the lack of variety can become a little monotonous and the album doesn't necessarily have a track that stands out from the rest.
If I did have to pick a breakout song, it would be "You So Sweet." It's a southern-fried love song complete with full-bodied crooning and 60s-era blues rock instrumentals. – Taylor Schoen
