I didn't want to start a new thread for Kele's album, so I'll just post here.

I picked up the album last night, and so far I'm really liking these 3 tunes:

Rise

Walk Tall

Hmm, the version on YouTube of 'On The Lam' is a bit different than the one on the album, especially the vocals. Well, anyway, I like that one a lot too.

I quite liked it...once it turned into the new Bloc Party album. Not that I didn't like the first three tracks, but...I really like Kele's voice, and I couldn't even hear it on the first few. A few more listens and I think I'll be quite fond of this'n.

Since I don't particularly like Bloc Party, this album sounds good to me. Not a lot of Kele on those first three tracks, but they're not my favorites either; it's hard to really fall in love with obvious (house) genre exercises like those. The rest files down Kele's more abrasive (re: obnoxious) edges but doesn't do the same to his heart or songwriting skill. It's really decent, but Silent Alarm fans will probably consider him a synth ho. I don't care, so I'll probably listen to it more often than the albums it's trying to distance itself from.

Well I like it. It isn't as good as the Bloc Party albums but I didn't expect it to be. My favourites are also Walk Tall and Rise.

So Bloc Party posted on facebook:
Wow. This is insane. Ok, we'll do something soon. Not sorry we took so long off, we were knackered, innit

And then:
To reiterate, Kele's still in the band (how could he not, he started the damn thing), but Tong's out, replaced by Dave Abbruzzese.

That's a shame. I'm glad they're still going though.

EDIT: Apparently that last bit was just a joke.

I'm glad they've said something. Was tired of all of the garbage speculation.

I follow them all on Twitter. Russell posts the most stuff. In the past month, he's posted pics or slightly obscured pics of each of them in the studio. I also follow their manager and he made an ambiguous tweet about: "The new songs sound fucking amazing!", however, it was not definitive if he was talking specifically about Bloc Party. Even so . . .

. . . this has been me the past month:

I didn't listen to it, but here's what someone just posted on the Bloc Party Wikipedia page:

Quote:
On the 3rd of January, 2012 Kele Okereke mentioned to Zane Lowe that they have fully recorded two songs and have a further 17 demoed, he went on to mention a new album will appear in 2012.
