To put it simply, Annie Clark is an incomparable artist. As St. Vincent, Clark has forged an incredible path of musical and artistic creativity, and that continues with her latest release, Masseduction. Again, she challenges herself and her audience with an amazing collection of new songs dealing with life, love, excess and more.
There is this feeling of hope that runs through so many Stars songs. It’s the notion that we’re all in this together and no matter what kind of day a person has had, they can put on a Stars record and they’ll feel better. The band has just released their latest album There is No Love in Fluorescent Light and we were thrilled to welcome them back to Studio A for a session. I talked with Amy and Torquil about the band’s longevity, their relationship with their fans (and each other!
When it comes to artist collaborations, what often seems like a good idea in theory ends up being somewhat less fruitful in execution. Lotta Sea Lice, however, the new album from Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile, succeeds in not trying to be something it isn’t. Here we have two talented songwriters making an album based on common interests, mutual admiration, and the desire to write and create music. That may somewhat oversimplify things, but it largely speaks to the modesty of each individual.
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".
