Before embarking on her solo career, Frankie Rose was a member of several bands. She worked with Vivian Girls, Dum Dum Girls and Crystal Stilts before releasing Frankie Rose and The Outs in 2010.

Eno · Hyde - High Life
Brian Eno must have really enjoyed working with fellow house luminary Karl Hyde. Although they released their first album together, Someday World, just this past May, they're already putting out its follow-up. Unlike many quick follow-up albums, this doesn't feel like a record of rejected songs, demos and b-sides, but is its own fully fledged-out record, proving that these two have a lot to contribute together.
Sean Watkins - All I Do Is Lie
After a seven-year hiatus, Sean Watkins reunited with his sister, Sara, and Chris Thile as Nickel Creek, who released a new album, A Dotted Line, in April. Sean has wasted no time in getting back to his solo career, however. All I Do Is Lie is his fourth solo record.
