Huevos Rancheros' sophomore release doesn't really add too many ingredients to the Calgarian combo's instrumental cauldron, but what did you expect? Bryan Adams on lead vocals? It's another tightly-wound, slightly smart-alecky set of surf-inspired twang, topped with a heavy dollop of Pixies-worthy indie rock power (check the bassline to "64 Slices of American Cheeze"). HR doesn't really need a vocalist, anyway. There's plenty of storyline in the lead guitar of "Where's the Bathroom? [In Spanish]," "Gump Worsley's Lament," and "Girl from N.A.N.A.I.M.O.," and the rhythm section fills in the margins with glee. Fans of derivations on a theme won't necessarily dig on Dig In. But who needs them anyway? It's a fun, freewheeling, instrumental rock record, that sizzles like it did in the genre's heyday, while winking with knowing indie rock charm. Order up!
