On her sophomore release, The Fits, Aly Tadros creates an album that makes you want to sit on the back porch with a glass of lemonade, watching the sun set and the lightning bugs begin to flicker in the darkness. With her skills as a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Tadros shows why her first album was no fluke. The Fits stands out as a fresh sounding piece of work in a bleak world of copycat hipster drivel.
“Silence and the Truth” and first single, “Sweet On Me,” immediately draw you into this record. There is just something honest and clean in Tadros’ voice makes you keep listening. On “The Cross Sticks,” she sounds as if she is channeling Johnette Napolitano of Concrete Blonde, which isnâ€™t necessarily a bad thing.
Though it’s only January, The Fits is starting off 2013 on a great note.
The Fits is out now on Lost Ridge Records.
