Less guitars, more disquiet on poetic Ohio band's seventh. There's a lot of sleep on this album, from first single "The System Only Dreams In Total Darkness" to a thick, abstract title track swimming in murmured mystery. The former is sewn with serrated rock guitar. "Turtleneck" and "Day I Die" are the kind of mad, scrambling eruptions that tend to have frontman Matt Berninger leaping from the stage to stand on your chair.
Sitting backstage after a sellout show at hip North London pub The Lexington, Alex Cameron and live saxophonist-turned-band-member and "business partner" Roy Molloy are reminiscing about less well-attended gigs. "We played for chicken wings in New York City," says Cameron, sipping a beer. "I played for a pint of vodka at [Brooklyn live music venue] Baby's All Right in 2014."
You'll find lots of rain, darkness and long roads in Adam Granduciel's new songs. On Up All Night, over a cantering beat, trickling piano and bursts of vibrant guitar fuzz, he sings: "It's just stopped raining, I'm stepping out into the world, I'm stepping out into the light." It's a welcome change, for him and us. All that damp walking on long roads in the dark can get to you after a song or three, especially when they're all five or six or 11 minutes long.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
