Julieta Venegas first came to attention when she was briefly a member of the subversive Mexican ska-punk band Tijuana No! in the early ’90s. Before departing the group for her own solo career, the Long Beach native (who was raised in Tijuana) composed one of Tijuana No!’s biggest hits, the mysteriously enchanting “Pobre de Ti,” a song that manages to encompass jazzy psychedelia, prog-rock complexity, horn-pumped ska rhythms, pure pop vocals and punk intensity over the course of just four and a half minutes. Venegas has never rocked as hard since then, eschewing politics and rebellion for a more nuanced and gently lulling pop approach on such albums as 2000’s Bueninvento and 2006’s Limón y Sal. She mixes traces of electronica within her strains of accordion and guitar on her most recent full-length, 2015’s Algo Sucede.
