I think we need to come up with either a blanket term or new genre to describe modern bands. We’re hyphenating them too much. But until that day comes here is Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life, the new album from the New-Wave-Indi-Pop-Post-Punk band The Wombats. It’s been a busy three years for the Liverpool group since their last album, Glitterbug; their time taken up with a heady mixture of tours and anniversaries. Their fourth studio album kicks off with the release track, ‘Cheetah Tongue’.
ALPHARETTA, Ga. – With building construction occupying much of the local landscape the past year, it was almost cartoonish Friday when crews from the Big Apple Circus spent all of eight hours erecting a 60-foot-high tent at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater. If you include prep work and interior setup, the operation was pretty much ready within a few days of arrival. The Big Top tent can hold 1,500 spectators, with no seat farther than 50 feet from the center ring.
ALPHARETTA, Ga. – Comcast has announced plans to close its operation on North Point Parkway in Alpharetta, a move the company says will affect more than 500 local jobs. The news and entertainment company is the largest broadband and cable provider in the country but plans to relocate some of its local workforce to other Atlanta area locations, according to Comcast spokesman Alex Horwitz.
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".
