Car Seat Headrest (Will Toledo) released a revamped version of his 2011 song "Cute Thing." The original had the shoddy charm of a bedroom recording; the new rendition adds clarity and punch to the drums and piercing guitar. The sound isn't the only thing Toledo updated. He tweaks some lyrics, trading in mentions of indie rock star Dan Bejar and the Who's John Entwistle for shout-outs to Frank Ocean and James Brown. But the primary difference between the two recordings is a sonic one.
The War on Drugs demonstrated their trademark mix of weary vocals and highly polished rock during a performance of "Pain" on The Tonight Show on Monday. The single became the band's first Number One hit last week when it climbed to the top spot on Billboard's Adult Alternative Songs Airplay chart. On The Tonight Show, lead singer Adam Granduciel displayed his mastery of late Seventies, early Eighties rock and roll.
Ann Curry discussed the firing of her former Today co-host Matt Lauer and correcting power imbalances in the workplace with Stephen Colbert on The Late Show on Monday. Curry's professional relationship with Lauer at Today was strained and Colbert pointed out that he was widely seen as the man behind her ousting from the program in 2012. "It's no secret that Matt Lauer forced you out of the Today show," Colbert said.
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".
