Germany’s Fidget have already been around for a couple of years but only recently got signed to Redfield Records. “Ashes & Dust” is the first result of that collaboration and like our good friend Borat would say before he goes about his business locking up gay people… is nice!

These four guys and one very cute girl play alternative rock that’s both catchy and very melodic. Sure, there’s a ton of other bands out there doing the same thing but with the dual vocal attack of Darline and Tom, Fidget scores extra points on songs like “Take Or Leave” and “Choke On The Promise”. If you’re a fan of acts such as Helicopter Helicopter, Elastica or an upbeat-er version of Belly, you should definitely give Fidget a listen.

Lacking the talent to actually play in a band, Tom decided he would write about bands instead. Turns out his writing skills are mediocre at best as well.
