Sia, 'We Are Born' (Monkey Puzzle/Jive)

6
We Are Born
Critical Mass
Label: Monkey Puzzle/Jive

by Mikael Wood

This Zero 7 alum is best known for moody, atmospheric ballads like "Breathe Me," which scored Six Feet Under's final scene. Yet We Are Born accentuates Sia's goofy party-girl side: Produced by Lily Allen's mate Greg Kurstin (the Bird & the Bee), it's full of up-tempo electro-pop jams that sound like Amy Winehouse covering Toni Basil's "Mickey." The material occasionally overdoses on cute, as on the Motown-for-moppets "Stop Trying." Crucially, though, Sia's bubbly confidence never falters-even during an airy rendition of Madonna's "Oh Father."
