Crystal City is the fruitful collaboration between Iowa musicians Dave Helmer and Sam Drella. The bands sound is best described as a mash-up of The Replacements, Wilco and Lana Del Rey. The opener “The Best Way” is the most energetic, fast paced rock tune. The lyrics are well written and the albums theme is about the ins and outs of a love affair.
