CATALDO – ” Keepers “

Cataldo is the recording project of Seattle musician Eric Anderson. His upcoming album is called “Keepers”, and the track we’re premiering today certainly fits the bill. “Person You’d Be Proud Of” is wistful and hopeful and beautiful, a brightly emotive yet understated slow-build that splits the difference between Anderson associate Ben Gibbard’s pensive indie rock stylings and rhythmically complex pop worthy of an ’80s teen movie’s closing credits. Or as Anderson himself explains it: At some point recording this tune my drummer asked “So…are we going full Gabriel?” As you can hear, we super, super did. This is a song about feeling lucky and wanting to somehow earn your own good fortune.


From start to finish each song on Keepers is better than the last. The first time I heard this album I thought it was an indie pop masterpiece. All year long I just love it more and more. The storytelling in these songs is amazing. Songs like “Little Heartbeat” and “Photograph” will make you dance while songs like “Straight Up Western” and “America, Goodnight!” will make you nostalgic for those friends you got into all of that trouble with.
