The artist formerly known as Cat Stevens is back with an album that combines new material along with rerecorded versions of several songs from his second album, New Masters, released back in 1967. Coproduced by Stevens and his classic producer (and ex-Yardbirds bassist) Paul Samwell-Smith — who helmed the majority of Stevens’s successful ’70s records — The Laughing Apple is actually quite consistent and shines with a sense of childlike wonder and a love for life and humanity.
It’s been a long time since one of the finest U.K. shoegazer bands of the 1990s put out an album — 21 years, in fact. But it’s safe to say that Ride, who were the missing link between the Stone Roses and Oasis (indeed, Ride co-vocalist/guitarist Andy Bell eventually joined Oasis before that band self-imploded), is back. What a joy it is, then, to once again hear Mark Gardener’s richly warm vocals cresting on Ride’s swirling guitar lines in transcendent flashes of satori.
The Kinks’ leader returns with his fourth solo studio album, a nostalgic ode to American culture from an aging British baby boomer’s perspective, ably backed by alt-country band The Jayhawks. The record might appear counter-intuitive, what with Sir Ray Davies’s standing as the greatest living lyricist of his generation to snarkily chronicle the British working-class experience while generating some of the finest rock songs ever created.
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".
