There’s nothing like a surprise release from a great band: Winterpills, say, putting out an unexpected single. Sure, the Northampton group posted “Colorblind” in August, but it’s never too late to celebrate, right? The song lands on the more uptempo end of the Winterpills spectrum.
There was a time when Lys Guillorn seemed like one of Connecticut’s most elusive singers and songwriters. Despite a fairly steady gig schedule, there were long gaps between recordings: Guillorn broke up the decade that stretched from her mesmerizing self-titled album to the 2013 follow-up, “Winged Victory,” with just one three-song EP, and a compilation of demos, covers and oddities. Since then, thankfully, she’s been rather more visible, with a regular stream of music.
Lucinda Williams couldn’t resist the temptation to revisit her past. But she should have. The singer has re-recorded her 1992 album “Sweet Old World,” reimagining many of the arrangements, adding a handful of songs that didn’t make the original and updating the title to “This Sweet Old World” to differentiate it from the original. Such a wholesale reinterpretation is a daring move, and also a curious one.
@caitoz Neither. But you're implying nefarious motives in what is more likely attributable to a basic journalistic screw-up. Malpractice? Sure. Immoral manipulation on behalf of Raytheon and the State Department? Probably not.
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".
