Last we heard from David Bazan, Death Cab for Cutie’s Ben Gibbard was covering his song “Big Trucks.” Now Bazan returns with a performance of his own. As part of his No Depression video series, he covered Radiohead’s “Packt Like Sardines in a Crushd Tin Box” during a Charlottesville power outage. The blackout forced him to cancel his concert proper, but he performed some songs acoustically while a fan held a flashlight. The spare setting emphasizes the naked emotion.

The Amnesiac track is not Bazan’s first venture into Radiohead. His band Pedro the Lion covered “Let Down” for a 2004 tour EP. Then just two weeks ago he covered “Creep” solo for WBEZ (below). Maybe he’ll follow Amanda Palmer with a Radiohead covers EP.
