"No time to waste," Aly Tadros repeatedly coos at the end of "Silence and the Truth" —  and she means it. The Fits, Tadros' deliberate and refreshing second solo record, is a jazz-leaning folk tapestry full of easy-going yet impressive finger-picking, vocal bravado, and gypsy breakdowns that swirl like smoke plumes caught in the wind. Producer Duane Lundy (Jim James, Ben Solee), who worked with Tadros on her debut Things Worth Keeping, does a beautiful job here in focusing the listener's attention largely on the midnight river clarity of Tadros' voice. Particular bright spots include the gently rollicking "It All," the dreamy jazzy love spell of a title track, the longing and swelling lead single "Sweet on Me," and the poignantly sighing "Behind My Hands."
