    Literally Main Street
    3:010:30
If youth is spent looking forward to the future, and old age is spent looking back at the past, then our thirties is something Cataldo’s Eric Anderson describes in Literally Main Street as “early middle age.” It’s when look over our shoulders to see how the nicks, bruises, and bad mistakes connect to who we are and how we became that way.
Flannery O'Connor once wrote “Anybody who has survived his childhood has enough information about life to last him the rest of his days,” something Anderson proves with profound wit and lyricism on Literally Main Street.
Anderson delights in specificity and detail avoiding the selective omissions and, if not nostalgia itself, at least its rose-colored hue. The characters in these songs are drinking “cheap gin and Hawaiian Punch” and hooking up with “that guy who only wears sandals.” They’re “barfing on the chaise lounge” and “teaching fitness martial arts.”
These and other stories pull back the drapes of an unvarnished past and invites you to cup your hands against the glass and look in. A look back at small-town adolescent weirdness, with all the awkward moments, nervous energy, and previously uncharted experiences left honest and unadorned. “In the arrangements, performances, and songs themselves everything is a little sideways and off-kilter,” says Anderson, “but isn’t that how life really is?"
