Because working with Metric and Broken Social Scene clearly wasn’t enough for her, Emily Haines has revived her The Soft Skeleton solo project. She hadn’t recorded under the moniker since the 2007 EP What Is Free to a Good Home?, but now the band’s first effort in a decade, Choir of the Mind, is set for a September 15th release. The 13-track album was first previewed with the lead single, “Fatal Gift”, last month. Today, a second listen has been delivered in the form of the haunting “Planets”.
The Walking Dead has been decaying bit by bit over the last few seasons, but it’s all be building to something. With the groups from the Kingdom and the Hilltop finally allied with Rick Grimes’ (Andrew Lincoln) Alexandria group, it’s finally time for the great war with Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and the Saviors. The battle commences with the series’ 100th episode, which kicks of the long-running AMC shows’ eighth season on October 22nd.
Toadies are set to return with their seventh studio album, The Lower Side of Uptown, on September 8th via Kirtland Records. The alternative stalwarts’ fifth effort since reuniting in 2006, this latest record finds the band harkening back to their 1994 debut, Rubberneck — even if that wasn’t their initial intention.
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".
