DON’T FORGET ABOUT DEAD MANS BONES THIS HALLOWEEN

 
The year is 2009, Ryan Gosling and Zach Shields officially release Dead Man’s Bones in the ethos, giving the world a fragiley raw, experimental and honest take on folk rock.

Together with the Silverlake Conservatory of Music‘s children’s choir, and producer Tim Anderson of Ima Robot, the pair created something like I had never quite heard before. A flash on Johnny Cash, a flash of doo-wop, a flash of folk put together, their perspective was something entirely new.

Walking thru the streets of NYC, DMB has been my soundtrack for seasons at a time. The pace and calm of the record, the monotones matched the dynamics, everything wrong about it makes it so right.

So in honor of Halloween, I thought it only fit we revisit this classic indie album, and give it some due attention.

We added to November’s TESTIFY video playlist, you can listen below.
