Dan Auerbach opted to use his given name for his solo project, but his Black Keys partner Patrick Carney’s taking a a shadowier route, titling his new band after his role in the Akron duo. Even though he’s Drummer’s bassist. The hook? Everyone in the Ohio “feel good” quintet is also a drummer, it’s just that 4 out of 5 of them are now playing instruments we’re not used to seeing them handle: Teeth Of Hydra/Harriet The Spy skinsman Jamie Stillman covers guitar, ex-Party of Helicopters drummer Jon Finley does guitar/vocals, and Houseguest drummer Steve Clements is on keys/vocals. Staying within his comfort zone, ex-Ghostman & Sandman drummer Greg Boyd gets to sit down and hit the drums.

Drummer’s 10-song, sundae dripping Feel Good Together is out 9/29 via Audio Eagle. Hear more unexpectedly swirly, triumphal results (complete with intricately hooked guitar leads) and check out their tour fall tour dates at MySpace.
