[UPDATE]: This interview between Zola Jesus and Harmony Korine took place in 2010, appropriately enough, during SXSW. With the release of Korine’s new movie, Spring Breakers, due out this Friday, we figured now was as good a time as any to revisit the last time he was doing the press rounds.
With his movie Trash Humpers on the eve of a new round of distribution, Harmony Korine was down in Austin eating some breakfast tacos. Nika Roza Danilova, a.k.a. Zola Jesus, was there, also to eat breakfast tacos, as well as to play some shows. We decided that if we couldn’t get Harmony Korine to guest rap over Zola Jesus’ darkwave tunes, the next best thing was to get them both at an east Austin taquería and to watch them shoot the shit about Mexican bald milking dogs and tap dancers on death row.
