Review: Charmparticles – Sit Down For Staying
National Music Reviews
SIT DOWN FOR STAYING
Sit Down for Staying is supposed to be an updated variation on the shoegazer theme. It is full of guitars taken from Ride records, blue prints from Slowdive and given a touch of warmth that reminds me of current popsters The Stars. It does however lack the delicate balance of whitewash and pop. The hooks aren’t deep enough, the atmosphere isn’t big enough.
