Ryan Gosling’s Goth Band. Wait–What?

If you’re a movie fan, you’ll know by now that Ryan Gosling–another Canadian who successfully infiltrated the US entertainment system–won a Golden Globe for best actor for his singing stint in the schmaltzy La La Land.  Turns out that this wasn’t Gosling’s first singing rodeo. You might remember his singing bits in a movie called Blue Valentine. And then there was his stint in the Mickey Mouse club where he performed with some kid named Justin Timberlake.

In between was Dead Man’s Bones, a band he formed in Hollywood in 2009. There was one album–and it’s actually pretty good. Read up on the whole project at Noisey.
