Robert Glasper, Taylor McFerrin & Derrick Hodge Team To Cover Radiohead

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Robert Glasper, Taylor McFerrin and Derrick Hodge team to cover Radiohead's "Packt Like Sardines In A Crushd Tin Box" for Capitol's 1 Mic 1 Take performance series. The performance belongs to a series of takes Glasper delivered for the Capitol Records series, including a cover of Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and Stevie Wonder's "Golden Lady." The performance is anchored by a steady bass performance from Derrick Hodge, who stays close to the bottom as Taylor McFerrin peppers the track with intricate fills and other percussive feats that often belie the fact that he is beatboxing. Robert Glasper rounds out the set with a performance that is driven and warm as he weaves the melody around their foundation to the tune of stunning results; their performance takes Radiohead's buzzing electronic original to a point of elegance in transformation. Check Robert Glasper, Taylor McFerrin and Derrick Hodge performing their cover of Radiohead's "Packt Like Sardines In A Crushed Tin Box" below.
