Dan Michaelson, this time minus the Coastguards, returns with his new solo album First Light on December 8. We heard the first single ‘Old Kisses’ last month, and now bring you the premiere of the lush opening track ‘Careless’. With rich instrumentation courtesy of orchestral arranger Arnulf Lindner, the rhythms of this song constantly shift – as befits an album written about the first moments of consciousness each day – “the most unpleasant moment of any day”, as Michaelson describes it.
After he piled up critical acclaim for his debut album Blood Moon last year, it was suggested to M. Craft that he put out an instrumental version of Blood Moon to highlight the beauty of the piano-led arrangements. But that all sounded a bit too simple to Craft, who dug down into the idea and created Blood Moon Deconstructed. “When an instrumental version of the album Blood Moon was suggested, I wanted to do more than just ‘muting the vocals’.
‘Wintersun’ is, Paul Mosley says, ‘an exercise in smart-arse time signatures’. That may well be true, but you don’t need to know that to appreciate this moving tale of unrequited love. With rich harmonies and sweeping saxophone, the third track of Mosley’s new EP has a wonderful West Coast vibe guaranteed to sweep you up. By the time you’re done listening to it you, like us, will be eager to hear the rest of Wintertide, but fear not – you need not wait long.
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".
