At the heart of Chinese Philosophy lies the yin and yang, the equal and complementary parts of the Tao, the journey of life. For Roberto Carlos Lange and his Helado Negro project, his multipart Island Universe Story has served as the moon (yin) to his albums’ sun (yang), a “shadow narrative” within his discography that runs parallel to the distinct statements of each album. Placed in this context, they reveal more about the artist than any one work ever could.
The Grammys has never been an arbiter of taste—even when they get it “right,” it appears to be accidental, like a broken clock being right twice a day. So if we’re to prescribe any value to the parade of pomp & circumstance that the Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences puts on every year, it’s that it’s meant to be a reflection of the music industry over the past year. And in some ways, it is.
Jenn Morel knows she’s got “it.” The dominicana rapper recently made the transition from dancing in hip-hop videos to rapping on her own, and she’s not waiting around for any suit at a label to validate her marketability. We recently explored the paths to stardom taken by a handful of contemporary Latinx musicians who have made their own status quo, forcing labels to get on board or get out.
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".
