Sara Rachele describes her music as, “Like somebody dropped Emmylou Harris down a well, and she’s mad about it,” but otherwise she’s difficult to pin down. “I’m at a place where I’m ignoring what’s happening in the industry because I don’t think anybody knows,” she says. Her latest project is an album, April Fool, recorded in Nashville with guitarist Johnny Duke. “I wasn’t even really trying to go into it with the idea to make an album,” she says.
For now, his punk band—he describes it as “what if Richard Butler from the Psychedelic Furs fronted The Replacements”—is back on the road. Then when that’s over, he moves on to Quiet Slang, his acoustic side project, which has a recently-released EP. “For the next six weeks, it’ll be drunk and loud and everything I love about rock and roll,” Alex says. “Then February hits and it’s tender…and drunk, and everything I love about rock and roll.”It’s not a common leap, but it’s not unprecedented.
BERKELEY — How do you review someone as good as Fantastic Negrito? The man is a master showman, and his music is incredible. Every time I’ve seen him perform has been better than the last, and Saturday night’s show at the UC Theatre kept that streak alive. But my editor still expects more than, “I expected him to be great and he totally was.”As one would expect, most of his set was from his Grammy-winning album The Last Days of Oakland. There’s a reason it won a Grammy after all.
People Magazine called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named “Sexiest Man (Man) of the Year,” but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot. I said probably is no good and took a pass. They had to go way, WAY down the list. Thanks anyway!
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".
