A Reader staffer shares three musical obsessions, then asks someone (who asks someone else) to take a turn. Godflesh, Post Self Drum machines and digital production make it easy to achieve robotically precise music. What I like about the new Godflesh record is that Justin Broadrick engineers its pistoning industrial stomps and dirgelike oscillations to sound as though they're kept in alignment only by constant, exhausting physical effort.
A Reader staffer shares three musical obsessions, then asks someone (who asks someone else) to take a turn. Youssou N'Dour at Millennium Park on August 10 The evening's rain passed the park by before Youssou N'Dour took the stage, and the night just got better from there. With its first note, his penetrating, supple voice made the hair on my neck stand up, and I especially loved the buoyant, bubbly new single "Yitél."
Of the dozens of shows I’ll see this summer, I’ve looked forward most to this outdoor concert by Senegalese national hero Youssou N’Dour. Born in 1959 to a griot mother and a car mechanic father, he began singing publicly at age 12 and has since become the most beloved voice in Africa. As a teenager in the mid-70s, he joined Dakar’s biggest group, the Star Band, formed in 1960 to celebrate Senegal’s independence.
@nytopinion In the mid-90s, my waived grad-school tuition at UO was about $11,000 per year. My stipend was maybe $560 per month. Taxing that tuition as income would've bankrupted me and forced me out of school.
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".
