Lentil (Live At Bowery Ballroom, NY/2006)
Songstress Sia showcases her sultry flair to a receptive crowd at NYC's Bowery Ballroom and slips in a buoyant new studio track on this short LP. The Aussie talent performs a few standouts from 2006's sweet and seductive groover, Colour the Small One, and also digs into her vault of works with downtempo gurus Zero 7. Backed by subtle strings and even subtler percussion, her multi-octave range takes the limelight it deserves, most notably on "Breathe Me." You'll want to break out the hugs after hearing her soulful drawl strain with passion to sing, "I am small and needy, warm me up."
