Listen to it with your eyes closed and You’ll see it…
Canadian actor Ryan Gosling has a band. It’s called Dead Man’s Bones. He and his friend Zach Shields both fascinated by ghosts , monsters and scary stories joined round up a bunch of instruments and a massive children’s choir from Silverlake Conservatory and maked a concept album about the supernatural on 2009 .
Like most people, I was skeptical about another actor-become-singer dropping a record with a friend and a childrens chorus. Seems like a recipe for disaster, right?
But Oh how I was wrong, the result is surprisingly pleasant, The album has a dark but gentle overtone , It’s eerie, haunting and subtly disturbing , cathartic with its combination of children’s voices and macabre subject matter.
I highly recommend it…you seriously won’t be disappointed…
