Dead Man's Bones

In time for Halloween... it's Dead Man's Bones. Released a few weeks back, DMB's debut, self-titled album is a monster ghost love story - that works!?! Don't be put off by the fact that this is Ryan Gosling's band - he can sing, he has a purpose, and he is no mere actor looking for some interesting little side project (hello Scarlett Johansson!). The entire album is a collaboration with the Silverlake Conservatory of Music Children's Choir (inspired by the Langley Schools Music Project) as seen here in the clip:
