American musicians from California to the Carolinas are scratching their heads over the surprising success First Aid Kit, who have one of the hottest releases so far of 2018 with the new “Ruins.”First Aid Kit’s core duo of Swedish sisters Johanna and Klara Soderberg have been appropriating American roots music for years and outselling U.S. artists with their results that reflect little if any traces of Scandinavia.
Camila Cabello might catch casual observers by surprise with her solo debut, “Camila.”To those who were half-paying attention, Cabello was one of five near-interchangeable singers of the all-woman vocal quintet Fifth Harmony. She might have stood out from time to time, but it was hard to tell how much talent any of them had when they were so heavily produced and relentlessly taking turns at lead vocals.
“Pitch Perfect 3” is being pitched as the final installment of the charming and improbably successful film franchise, and given the soundtrack, maybe it is time for that final curtain call. The movie series, which launched with the first “Pitch Perfect’ in 2012, revolves around a cappella singing – an unlikely premise for a breakout film, but the preceding success of the TV show “Glee” made it seem worth the risk.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
