Kele – The Boxer (Universal Music Canada)

The singularly named Kele steps away from his full-time gig fronting Bloc Party for the release of his solo debut The Boxer. While Bloc Party have always flirted with electronic music, the band’s skilled use of live instruments always gave them an edge over others who do the exact same thing. Even though there is nothing downright awful on this electronica-fuelled disc, I didn’t feel as though there was anything that jumped out at me either. Kele best stick to Bloc Party and forget plans to make the solo career a full time gig.
