Happy Halloween! For the day that’s in it I thought I’d share this video from the LA-based band Dead Man’s Bones. It would seem that in the last few months there’s been no escaping actor Ryan Gosling. Not content with being one of the hardest working men in Hollywood, as well as being a hugely talented actor and a generally all-round handsome chap, Gosling seems to also want to add “damn fine musician” to his already impressively long list of accolades. Dead Man’s Bones is a musical collaboration between Gosling and his friend Zack Shields and the pair founded the group a couple of years ago. The whole project culminated back in 2009 with the release of their excellent self-titled album and a number of live shows.
The track above is called In The Room Where You Sleep and it features the duo alongside the excellent Silverlake Conservatory Children’s Choir; a non-profit educational organization founded by Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers in the hopes of fostering music education. It’s a wonderful track and the video is well worth watching for the choir of spooky kids. I particularly love the kid at the end with the sword. Chances of getting any tricker-treaters as awesome as him tonight seem slim-to-none! Make sure to grab a copy of the album as it’s the perfect accompaniment to your Halloween night.
