The 1993 debut album Copacetic by Velocity Girl has the shoegaze and noise rock pieces for something special but never quite gels together

Author & Special Guests

After a string of indie label seven inch releases, Velocity Girl from College Park, Maryland, released their debut album Copacetic on Seattle's legendary Sub Pop records. Taking their name from the Primal Scream track, the band leans into the UK sound of shoegaze with a layer of American indie and noise rock. Lead singer Sarah Shannon's vocal hover above the fray, the anchor in the three-to-four minutes of brittle guitars and thin rhythms that hamper the potential of Copacetic.

This episode is dedicated to Steven Jon, who passed away on November 23rd, 2023. RIP.
