One of the most surprising elements of the results of this year's annual ND Year-End Readers Poll was the number of artists who wouldn't necessarily fall into the category of roots music. No Depression readers, you lifted Ryan Adams — who hasn't felt like Americana for years — into the top five. You encouraged The War on Drugs' hazy rock to float up within the top 20. You voted Beck — a eccentric rock and roller to the core — into the top 40.
Year-in-review season is often cause for reflection. As the days get shorter, the time spent inside memories of the past 12 months often gets longer. And there's been a lot to process this year. In reading the results from No Depression's Year-End Review Poll from 2016, it seems like many of the social and political themes that shaped our perception of last year's music were, in fact, some of the clearest influences on albums released in 2017.
Guinness is an institution in Ireland. The Guinness Storehouse is often ranked the No. 1 visitor attraction in Dublin, and for good reason, too. It’s a massive interactive museum built in one of the company’s old fermentation plants that ends with guests indulging in a pint (or several) of the dark, frothy goodness at the top of its Gravity Bar—the tallest bar in the city.
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".
