Interviews: Excerpts From Conversations With SXSW Artists

Earl Sweatshirt on Microphone Check / Video Interview

"This is the first thing that I've said that I fully stand behind, like the good and the bad of it. Because it's just — I've never been this transparent with myself or with music. I've never been behind myself this much."

Shamir on Weekend Edition Saturday

"I always say I never felt 'latched' to a gender. I just kind of always felt like myself, and I never felt like I had to do certain things or be a certain way to fit into a certain mold."

"I think as long as you wear your imperfections on your sleeve, people respect it more."

Seinabo Sey on All Things Considered

"I don't feel free there, and that makes you write in a certain way. There's a lot of good things about Sweden of course, but there's a mentality that everyone is supposed to be the same. There's actually a term for it called Jantelagen — there's books written on that topic, and it's everywhere in our society. As well as, there's not a lot of people with my complexion, so I really grew up never seeing myself. I'm not sure I'd be as good a writer if I was somewhere where there weren't as many problems."
