Crystal City‘s transition’s complete.  Former acoustic duo Dave Helmer and Sam Drella have added a band and released Change, their second record, following an eponymous EP.  Brock Muench adds bass and Blake Oleson (since replaced by Dan Peterson) drums.  Dave, a gifted writer, also sings and plays guitar.  The lovely and talented Sam sings (she could sometimes be mixed a little louder), whistles and adds the occasional trumpet part.  Dan designed the album cover, which, as you can see, is awesome.
