VIDEO: Sleigh Bells, Neon Indian, Yeasayer talk Phil Collins

You might recall a few months ago when one particular review on this site referred to the latest Yeasayer record as “Genesis leg-humping”. Well if you’re interested in a more straightforward version of unabashed Phil Collins gushing from Yeasayer frontman Anand Wilder (and a few others), be sure to check out the video below. In a segment titled “Don’t Fight It, Phil It” from the Norwegian television program “Lydverket”, today’s indie stars confess to the brilliance of the pop legend, relating the influence Collins’s music has had on their own. The video also includes interview segments with Phil Collins, and his own response to the recent popularity of his music amongst the indie crowd. He also admits he has found himself apologizing for his success when at times it appeared to be working against his favor, or as the Norwegian reporter explains, Collins “for years has been discounted as pompous, cheesy and out of date”. Watch as the tides begin to turn below.
