B.A. Johnston 

Stairway To Hamilton (Just Friends)

B.A. Johnston has proven that he's one of the best live acts to ever call Halifax home. Does it matter that he wrote a great album, Stairway To Hamilton, chronicling a life of dirt malls and dead-end jobs that channels the spirit of Ford Pier and the Bonaduces, as long as he still continues to serve up Jager shots, self-deprecating non-sequiturs, snot rockets and a bare belly? It might not. Unfortunately what that means is missing out on recordings that at their best, channel the wit and vitriol of early Mountain Goats. Still, armed with an arsenal of pop culture references, B.A. releases an album that's almost as memorable as his live show.
