The luxury high-rise of rock-and-roll has fallen on hard times in the last 25 years. Once fancy condos are now overrun by squatters who, in doing as they please, revitalize the neighborhood. Bands like Strawberry Girls emerge from the tumult and change the status quo. In fact, the Salinas, Calif.-based trio aren't girls or "strawberries" (in street parlance, addicts willing to do anything for a taste) at all.
Your money or your life? We typically imagine those words coming from the mouth of an assailant. But for Joss Stone, it was her record company. Like Johnny Rotten, the young soul singer ran up against EMI, and in 2009 surrendered an estimated 10 million pounds ($12.8 million) — everything she had but her home — to get out of a four-album deal with three discs left to deliver.
During the past 10 years, Alynda Segarra, leader of Orleans-born band Hurray for the Riff Raff, endured an odyssey of discovery, which informed HFTRR's new concept album, The Navigator (ATO Records, March 2017). Inspired in part by David Bowie's Ziggy Stardust, the dystopian-tinged Navigator is the story of Navita, who, upon returning home, finds her city destroyed, so she sets out in search of identity and family.
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".
