After over two decades as international music icons, the Mexican bandmates ofProtected content have adopted myriad identities. They’ve been hard rockers, folk singers and experimental artists. In their latest album, Jei Beibi, they’re timely, poetic, border-transcending social critics.

From politics to language to pop culture, Mexico and the U.S. have a complex, contentious history. And yet in spite of this — or more likely because of it — the U.S.-Mexico relationship has had a rich, undeniable influence on artists from both sides of the border.

That influence is all over Café Tacvba’s latest work, including Jei Beibi and the supporting tour, the “Niu Güeis Tur,” across the U.S. and Mexico. Café Tacvba’s Mexican heritage, and its prolonged exposure to American pop culture, is evident throughout. Within the record’s first half alone, an homage to '80s glam rock makes way for a Latin jazz ballad, only to be immediately followed by stints in psychedelic rock and Son Mexicano (a folk musical style traditionally from southern Mexico).
