Plainly put, ‘Other Side’ by Cataldo is one of my favorite songs of this young year. Perhaps it’s cause I’ve just lived what Eric Anderson works through in the song, but there’s something so striking and cutting about the way Eric Anderson describes those years lost to heartbreak and soul-searching, and the fear and self-doubt that eventually sneaks in and replaces it. So much truth and beautiful honest in these three minutes and eighteen seconds, guys and girls.
Cataldo will be releasing Gilded Oldies on March 4th. You can (and should, because it’s tremendous) pre-order it right here. Enjoy.
