‘Beautiful World, Where Are You’: Sally Rooney’s frustratingly surface-level novel

Contributing Writer Thia Bian reviews Sally Rooney’s newest novel, “Beautiful World Where Are You,” arguing that while the novel interrogates the place of love and beauty in a falling world, it fails to provide a satisfying resolution or exploration of these difficult questions.

Conan Gray’s ‘Telepath’: why less is more

“Telepath” is an amalgamation of old and new. While the track is nostalgic, reminiscent of ’80s disco music, the lyrics detail the ever-so-relatable experience of a dying relationship.

Tao + Teicher concert

Combining piano and tap dance, Tao, Teicher stun and reinvent at Richardson Hall

This is the kind of music that overturns what you thought you knew about everything you’ve heard before. It makes you, sitting up on stage with the performers, think, “Jesus, what have I been listening to for my entire life?”
