While we wait for Portishead to collectively “clear their schedules” and make time to record their new album, Beth Gibbons has kept busy by teasing a new solo LP and teaming up for the most unlikely collaborations. Case in point: here, Gibbons joins forces with stoner metal outfit Gonga for a cover of Black Sabbath’s “Black Sabbath” — appropriately re-titled “Black Sabbeth”, of course — replacing Ozzy’s signature growl with her own spectral vox.
Looks like Kelis will take her “Milkshake” and “Jerk Ribs” from the stage to the kitchen. After years of clever culinary analogies, the R&B singer will finally put her real taste buds to the test on her very own cooking show. Awesomely titled Saucy and Sweet, the new series will highlight her dishes and recipes, and give “an inside look at how she composes food with attitude”. Saucy and Sweet premieres next Wednesday, February 26th at 8:30pm ET on the Cooking Channel.
For his 2014 album, Metamodern Sounds in Country Music, alt country songwriter Sturgill Simpson put his own unique spin on When In Rome’s ’80s hit “The Promise”. Now, for his forthcoming full-length A Sailor’s Guide to Earth, he is tackling another renowned track in Nirvana’s “In Bloom”. “I remember in seventh or eighth grade, when that album [Nevermind] dropped, it was like a bomb went off in my bedroom,” Sturgill said in a statement.
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".
