Arctic Monkeys have backed up their “Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?” single with the equally long-in-name B-side “Stop the World I Wanna Get Off With You.” The A-side deals with the mishaps of drunken booty calls, but Alex Turner takes a slightly more romantic tack on the flip. He suggests that he and his lady friend drop everything else in their lives to go somewhere alone and do adult things (and he doesn’t mean go shopping at Ikea).
Last month, James Blake returned to BBC Radio 1 for his occasional Residency hosting gig, which is less a traditional DJ set and more a blank canvas on which the English producer debuts new songs, conducts fake interviews, shares fresh remixes, and does whatever else he feels like doing. The March playlist included his typical eclectic blend, with cuts by LCD Soundsystem, Damian Marley, Womack & Womack, Earl Sweatshirt, and Bill Withers.
Give Vampire Weekend some credit: They're not afraid to make fools of themselves. The quartet stopped by BBC 1's Live Lounge for a studio taping and decided to cover Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines," the somewhat controversial summer jam featuring T.I.
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".
