Jef Barbara streaming new LP, ‘Soft to the Touch’

by Bill Pearis


As mentioned, Montreal’s Jef Barbara is set to release his second album, Soft to the Touch, next week (9/30) via Club Roll Music. Blurring genre and gender lines, Jef skips between minimal electro, shimmering and ethereal guitar pop, skronky new wave with forays into glam and krauty bachelor pad music — all with élan and wit. Some of which is in French. The record also makes time for a duet with onetime Stereolab singer Laetitia Sadier (“Chords”). You don’t have to wait a week to hear it, though, as a stream of the whole album is making its debut in this post.

Jef doesn’t have any North American dates at the moment but is about to head to Europe. Those dates are listed, along with the album stream, below.
