We Are Born

Genre: Pop; Lead Performer: Sia

Sia Furler may still be best known for her silken vocals on down-tempo touchstones like Zero 7’s ”Destiny” and her own ”Breathe Me.” But a girl cannot live on gauzy balladeering alone. On We Are Born the chanteuse explores more caffeinated avenues: cut-a-shag-rug funk (”Clap Your Hands”), finger-snappy soul (”Never Gonna Leave Me,” ”Stop Trying”), and even squiggly disco (”You’ve Changed”). It’s party music with a heart. B+
