Words and interviews by John Bohannon
Squeezing in interviews amongst the craziness at SxSW is kind of like trying to talk to your mom drunk on the phone in the 9th grade. Amongst all the drinks (on both the artists and interviewers end), we fall into blunt honesty due to our state, therefore creating an ideal interview situation. I had the chance to interview a handful of international artists -- including The New Wine and Casiokids, who both traveled from the distant land of Norway -- as well as the Tallest Man on Earth, one of the most captivating folk artists to grace the scene in years. Amongst those, Parker Griggs, mastermind guitarist behind new-psychedelia trio, Radio Moscow had very few words to say, but hey, he played the High Times party, so you get the picture.
