Timeshare - Blue


Can we interest you in a Timeshare? This one only comes in Blue, but it is varied, melodic and, at times, a bit quirky. It is true that you can't live in it, but the upside is you don't have to buy any furniture or pay maintenance fees.

Timeshare is the not Google-friendly project of Jordan Thompson, of Melbourne's beloved The Ocean Party. And because the members of The Ocean Party all contributed songs and lead vocals, the songs on Blue may have a hint of familiarity. But in our view that is something to welcome with open ... ears. This album is brief -- only six tracks -- but it is a fine showcase for Jordan's sharp and delightfully dynamic songwriting. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do, and will look forward to more Timeshare.
