Half Nelson in a Cemetary: Dead Man’s Bones

Recognizable actor Ryan Gosling and (not-so) recognizable actor Zach Shields claim they don’t know how to play all the instruments heard on their debut album from their debut band Dead Man’s Bones (featuring The Silverlake Conservatory of Music Children’s Choir). If that’s true, who cares. The couple songs they’ve already dropped, which have been floating around the internet, are pretty darn good.

You can download the first cut from the album here, or you can watch the video for it below. Called “In the Room Where You Sleep,” it’s a pretty great first cut, with a Cash-channeling Gosling and an almost Randy Newman-esque piano backed by the perfectly imperfect choral stylings of a children’s choir (co-founded by Flea).


The debut album, which appears to only have the first of the two songs shown above on it, drops from Anti- Records on October 6th with the tracklist as follows:

01 Intro
02 Dead Hearts
03 In the Room Where You Sleep
04 Buried in Water
05 My Body’s a Zombie for You
06 Pa Pa Power
07 Young & Tragic
08 Paper Ships
09 Lose Your Soul
10 Werewolf Heart
11 Dead Man’s Bones
12 Flowers Grow Out of My Grave

Here’s to hoping there’s a tour in the near future – maybe at some local elementary schools – maybe on Halloween!
