Bashing out reverb-drenched surf licks with shameless abandon the debut EP from The Bigfoot Rocketship secures the band a place in Calgary’s canon of retro-inspired instrumentalists. From the slinky riff of “Rusty Nails” to the jaunty Ventures-inspired “Super Stock” to the maxi-Mexi stomp of “Bonus Nachos” these guys know the genre and how to capitalize on their influences. This tightly wound six-pack owes more to surf’s late-’90s revival than it does to the initial wave from the ’60s but whether the Rocketship is aping Shadowy Men From a Shadowy Planet or The Pyramids doesn’t change the fact that it has something pretty sweet in the pipeline.
