Susan Cowsill and Vicki Peterson virtually grew up in public with their first bands, The Cowsills and The Bangles, respectively. But when they put their heads together as The Psycho Sisters, they reveal much more rocking and countrified range than they usually get to demonstrate in their better-known pop groups. The pair has been playing together since the early '90s in such New Orleans combos as The Continental Drifters and The Psycho Sisters. As musical (if not literal) sisters, Cowsill and Peterson have only put out a rare single or two in all this time, but they've finally released their debut full-length album, Up on the Chair, Beatrice. The album moves from such unusual tunes as “Heather Says,” which stitches together the duo's haunting, baroque-pop harmonies with lyrical violins, to older favorites such as the evocatively rustic “Timberline.”
