Chill, downtempo music has taken the electronic music genre by storm the past couple of years, with the rise of producers like Kygo, who have filled festival soundwaves with catchy, easy-listening beats. This new fad isn’t necessarily bad; in fact, artists like ODESZA, Petit Biscuit and Manilla Killa have explored this sound quite well. Kasbo is relatively new to the electronic music scene. His debut album, “Places We Don’t Know,” has firmly cemented his place in the “chillwave” genre, although time will tell if he’s a name worth remembering.
A student body referendum will decide whether to raise blanket tax fees $5 to cover intramural sports expenses, after the Student Association Senate unanimously passed a resolution supporting the increase on Monday.

I grew up surrounded by Indians who would automatically speak to me in Hindi. Why was I expected to know Hindi? I felt immense guilt and would apologetically explain that I speak Tamil, a South Indian language. My immigrant parents raised me to be fluent in reading and writing Tamil. Yet I was ashamed for not knowing popular Bollywood films or the “quintessential” Indian music because I felt that was crucial to being perceived as culturally Indian.
Rice has long heralded itself as a champion of diversity and accessibility. The broad range of our inclusivity and the quirkiness of our identity have cultivated a community that is at once beautifully diverse, unconventionally brilliant and unapologetically unique. However, the Rice community has often found itself grappling with the dissonance of comparing itself to peer institutions while retaining the facets of the university that set it apart.
Rice University has found a new dean of undergraduates in the form of Bridget Gorman, current Will Rice College magister and chair of the sociology department. She will succeed outgoing dean John Hutchinson in July.
For the second consecutive season, multiple men’s basketball players will transfer from Rice. Freshmen Malik Osborne and Miles Lester announced on Twitter that they received their releases, while sophomore Austin Meyer confirmed to the Thresher that he too intends to depart.
Rice baseball entered the eighth inning on Sunday against the University of Southern Mississippi trailing 6-2, seemingly headed for its third straight loss and ninth in 11 games. But a five-run Owls rally, capped by an RBI single by freshman second baseman Trei Cruz, helped Rice salvage a game from the No. 14 Golden Eagles. Despite Sunday’s win, the Owls lost two out of three games to the Golden Eagles and dropped to 12-18 on the season and 2-7 in Conference USA.
Four-time All-American. Six-time Conference USA champion. Rice record-holder in the heptathlon and C-USA record-holder in both the decathlon and heptathlon. Scott Filip’s accomplishments alone could fill up an entire resume. There’s a very good argument to be made that he is the most prominent Rice athlete on the national stage; last year he finished fifth in the decathlon at the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships and was the top American finisher at the 2017 Thorpe Cup, a decathlon dual meet between the United States and Germany. All this just a year after finishing 10th in the decathlon at the 2016 U.S. Olympic Trials in Eugene, Oregon.
Two is Better Than One: Exploring Bilingual Education, Its Barriers, and the Link to Higher Education
This weekend, the inaugural In Bloom Music Festival kicked off in Eleanor Tinsley Park with headliners such as Beck, Incubus and Martin Garrix. After a disastrous flood led to the cancellations of Free Press Summer Fest performances last year, C3 Concerts officially closed down the June festival and replaced it with In Bloom. The festival featured four stages spread out in Eleanor Tinsley Park, with highways overhead, the skyline in clear sight and the bayou within smelling distance.
Despite their 22-year history, indie rock band of Montreal has managed to never sound stale. This is thanks in part to frontman Kevin Barnes’ constant experimentation with the group’s sound, moving from avant-garde to dance pop to electronic sounds within the span of a few years. Released earlier this month, “White is Relic/Irrealis Mood,” is of Montreal’s 15th studio album, and while it certainly isn’t stale, it isn’t exactly good.

While most Rice students spent the weekend enjoying their second Christmas (or third, if you hail from Baker College) of the year at Beer Bike, the members of the Rice baseball team spent their weekend facing Western Kentucky University, dropping two out of three games to the Hilltoppers to fall to 10-16 on the season.
I’ll admit it; I didn’t see it coming. Throughout my time at this school, I have criticized Rice Athletics. I thought the department was slow to address problems, that teams were trending in the wrong direction, that change was often necessary. I now admit that I was wrong. After nearly 30 years of occasional greatness and frequent respectability, Rice Athletics has returned to the good ol’ days. Finally, Rice sucks again.
