Montreal singer Jef Barbara released Soft to the Touch last year. One of the more striking songs on the album was "Erection," a spiky, new wave-y number filled with Jef's cooly dismissed barbs overtop. There's now a video for that song which makes its premiere in this post.
Jef will be in Austin for SXSW, including the Pop Montreal Showcase on Friday (3/14) that also features Jessy Lanza, Alden Penner, Seoul and more. He'll also be sticking around on Sunday (3/16) for the free, all-day GayBiGayGay 2014, details of which are still TBA.
All of Jef's Austin appearances are listed, along with the "Erection" video, below...
