Grand Duchy - Let the People Speak
Frank Black (a.k.a. Black Francis) is a fairly busy man, musically speaking. He started his career with the Pixies, began a solo career around the time the Pixies ended in 1993. He joined up with backing band The Catholics in '97 and released his first album as Grand Duchy (with his wife, Violet Clark) in 2009. He's also done a fair amount of other collaborative work, including last year's Paley and Francis, with Reid Paley. While he's struggled to attain the same praise as a solo artist that he received for the Pixies, he's certainly been very prolific!
M. Ward - A Wasteland Companion
Despite having spent more time as a solo artist, M. Ward has become better known for his work with Zooey Deschanel as one-half of She & Him. Many fail to realize, though, that he had five albums under his belt before teaming up the The Quirky One, and probably has many more.
