DEAD MAN’S BONES
Dead Man’s Bones is the musical project of actor Ryan Gosling and his friend Zach Shields. In case you are thinking ‘oh, ANOTHER actor making an album’: don’t think that! It’s a brilliant record full of dark pop songs accompanied by the Silverlake Conservatory Childrens’ Choir. A childrens’ choir singing on a spookily dark pop album? Massive YES! Yes! Yes! Yes!

I can’t believe I never listened to this band until now. I was in Rough Trade yesterday before the Cymbals Eat Guitars show, and they were playing this amazing music. I had to go to the counter and ask what it is. It’s brilliant. Wonderfully dark and beautiful, seek it out! I am particularly in love with My Body’s A Zombie For You. The choir is magnificent! So atmospheric and spectacular. Gosling’s voice is deep and strong, and works excellently in conjunction with the choir. The crashing cymbals, the sing a long chorus… amazing. The album is self titled and you should listen to it. It’s on Spotify.
Hope you love it.
