Gosling sings Goth

I’m a fan of actor Ryan Gosling. He was absolutely riveting in last year’s Half Nelson (for which he was nominated for an Oscar) as a strung-out heroin addict who still managed to hold down his day job as a public school teacher. Good stuff. Also played a screwed-up yet highly, highly intelligent teenager who commits murder in this overlooked film called The United States of Leland a couple years ago. Terrible title, great little indie film.

Now, Gosling has released an album with his own band, Dead Man’s Bones. It’s called “In the Room Where You Sleep”, and features Gosling singing and playing the piano, backed up by a chorus of schoolkids singing an eerie, goth-like refrain.
