Radio Sessions is a live album (with one studio-based exception) of pleasantly dark folk, driven by Steven and Heather Zydek’s vocal harmonies. Their voices function well together over subtle acoustic guitar work, each allowing the other to take a turn in the spotlight. Unfortunately, these Radio Sessions also include between-song chatter and multiple interviews, which grow tiresome by the album’s end. Rabid Joyful Sorrow fans (if such creatures exist) will doubtless appreciate the behind the scenes stuff, but the songs work better alone.
