Band Alert: Dead Man's Bones

I don't know how I've been in the dark about this band, but I have recently fallen in love with the duo Dead Man's Bones.  They've been around since 2009 and I was just turned on to them by the blog Live & Enliven.  Dead Man's Bones is a band comprising actor Ryan Gosling and friend Zach Shields.  " Once they realized their shared affinity for the eerie, they started trying to write a theatrical monster ghost love story for the stage. They decided that this story should have music so they began learning how to play various instruments. By the time they had written their first few songs they realized how difficult it would be and how much money it would cost to create the show. They decided to continue with the music and put the play aside." (taken from Facebook)
If you know me at all, you know that I love vampires, zombies, monsters, ghosts, graveyards and pretty much anything macabre or deathly!  Dead Man's Bones is all about that!  Plus, they actually sound good.  Don't you love it when actors try to do something else artistic and they're actually good at it?  And have you seen Ryan Gosling?  Yeah.  'Nuff said.
All tracks on this playlist are off their 2009 self-titled debut album.
