For Your Wednesday Listening Pleasure: GOL Wanna Do a Tiny Desk Concert!

That's a lotta peoples around such a tiny desk.

That’s a lotta peoples around such a tiny desk.

If’n ye didn’t know, NPR has what they call their “Tiny Desk Concert” series, wherein they invite musicians to come in and perform at a very confined space in their office. Open Mike Eagle did one back in December!

Well, apparently they’re having some sort of contest to get in on that tiny desk action, as evidenced by this official-looking piece of graphic design:

See? Proof of contest!

My good friends The Gentlemen of Leisure (aka GOL) have entered the contest with their excellent song “Blessed and Highly Favored,” which you can listen to in its entirety!

They also maked a video of them performing it live:

Wouldn’t that be exceptionally exceptional if GOL got to GO on NPR? The answer is yes.
