Pop-punk’s widely considered the kind of throwaway music you get into in your teens and early 20s before moving on to more serious fare, but Colleen Green’s a grown-ass woman who’s continuing to find new levels of depth in a style that often tends toward shallowness. That’s not to say her music’s not fun—I Want to Grow Up, which comes out Tuesday on Hardly Art, is a fizzy sugar rush that pulls from a spectrum of snotty acts ranging from the Muffs to Jay Reatard.
Born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, the young DJ/producer Michael Brun has found a second home in the dance music world—where he’s been establishing himself as an A-list-worthy talent though official remixes for Tiesto, Calvin Harris and Alicia Keys, as well as festival appearances at Coachella and Ultra.
Since 2006 Amanda Sudano-Ramirez and Abner Ramirez have been making music that bonds together folk, rock, pop, and soul, resulting in something that stands well apart from the current deluge of Mumford clones. The same ability to forge connections between different genres seems to have worked on themselves personally as well—the two are now both collaborators on a marriage as well as a band, Johnnyswim.
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".
