Not that these boys need my help honestly, they've been blowing up for so long I can't wait for their record to finally come out. Every time I run into them their energy is insanely infectious, which in turn translates into impeccable DJ sets...Read More I met Jim-E a few years ago thru the WeDidIt boys, and just like them he exudes an incredible youthful, friendly, witty energy. His music always reflects it.
Blue Hawaii are a great band from Montreal composed of Raphaelle Standell-Preston, who also plays in Braids, and Alex Cowan. After a four-year hiatus they are finally coming back to release Tenderness on Arbutus later this year. I’ve loved this band for quite some time and thought it would be a perfect time to catch up with both of them on Skype. — Jacques Greene JG: If I can just record the output of my computer.
Ebhoni is a young singer/songwriter from Toronto I came across a few months ago, when she self-released a collection of tracks to SoundCloud called Mood Ring. As I brought up to her during our chat, though there’s a lot of really good music coming out of Toronto right now, the shadow OVO and XO casts is rather large. The stuff is good but Ebhoni is offering a breath of fresh air from the woozy sound the city we both live in is known for right now.
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".
