Take Care of Business My name is Alex Cameron and I won't waste your time. When you're talking about me and my business partner, Roy Molloy, you're talking about the online cowboys in the wild-west days of the World Wide Web. And if you want to know what we're really about just look at all the things you wish you'd done differently. IAmContent He's like some Nebraska-era Springsteen or Tom Waits for the student loan generation.

The Australian musician Alex Cameron paints quick, affecting character sketches of losers and creeps, bolstered by elementary synth programming and Cameron’s confident, warm baritone. Seven of Jumping the Shark’s brief eight tracks are in the first person, and each one depicts a cast of losers and creeps whose unifying thread is the sort of desperate nature of trying to avoid failure. Though his characters are caricatures of the downtrodden-e. the drunkest, ugliest girl at the bar; broken men who’ve moved back in with their parents-Cameron has crafted these characters so convincingly it’s easy to imagine he’s being honest when he says he drew some from his own life.

Alex Cameron is your new favourite loser. Or, to put it more poetically, he’s music’s rising connoisseur of failure. A character songwriter in the guise of a Lynchian cabaret act, he peoples his synthpop with stories more suited to AA meetings than song-and-dance routines. Cameron’s style may verge on the parodic, but he takes his theme seriously and has compassion for his characters. Album opener Happy Ending takes a seat at the bar with a laid-off financier living back with his folks. Single The Comeback, with its vocal full of brooding bombast, meanwhile, is the tale of a washed-up gameshow host. Somehow, these stories attain tear-jerking levels of dignity through being performed by a guy with hyperbolic dance moves, peculiar hair and only a seedy looking saxophonist, Roy Molloy, for company
