Two months back, we premiered a standout track from an unsigned upstart L.A. band that completely caught us by surprise, and now we’re happy to report Sleeplust has delivered on that promise with an excellent new EP. “Flood Gates,” that alluring synth-rock single that first piqued our interest, serves as a jumping off point for Sleeplust’s brand new Missing Pieces EP, which flexes its songwriting dexterity well beyond the opening track.
Jack Antonoff of Bleachers performs at Bush Hall on July 5, 2017 in London. On Tuesday (July 25), Jack Antonoff’s bombastic alt-pop troupe announced a bunch of new North American shows in support of its now roughly two-month-old sophomore album Gone Now. Bleachers will follow up a handful of previously announced late summer shows with a string of new dates, beginning Sept. 8 in Lewiston, N.Y. It wraps up Nov. 20 with a hometown show for Antonoff and company at New York City’s Terminal 5.
Happy midsummer! Festival season is in full swing and the race for 2017 Song of the Summer is starting to look like a breakaway sprint. But over in the alt world, we’ve got plenty of up-and-comers and next big things to introduce -- even some one-time up-and-comers who are onto late-career chart breakthroughs. There’s Arcade Fire, the critically acclaimed, Album of the Year Grammy winners, whose “Everything Now” just became their first No. 1 song.
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".
