SXSW 2013: Stereogum Range Life, Featuring Youth Lagoon, METZ, Sky Ferreira, Hundred Waters, Bleeding Rainbow, Lakutis

For an afternoon, Stereogum got the keys to the Hype Hotel, bringing at all-over-the-place lineup of performers to the cavernous space. Bleeding Rainbow opened things up early on, admirably wailing their way through fuzzily direct garage-pop and hitting big, harmonious notes while many of us were still wiping sleep from our eyes. Hundred Waters’ electronic, new-agey whooshes worked as a lovely hangover cure before the post-hardcore trio METZ brutally smashes everybody’s brains back into submission. The endlessly winning teenage rapper Kitty showed off a flow that works shockingly well onstage, and master of ceremonies Lakutis joined her onstage for one pretty great new song. Youth Lagoon drew a huge crowd for their expansive, gorgeous psych-pop, and Sky Ferreira closed out the show to an even bigger throng, her starry-eyed drug-pop songs sounding more and more like hits every day.
