Throw out everything you know, or you think you know about Summer Cannibals' frontwoman Jessica Boudreaux. The Portland-based artist has branched out on her own, and her solo album, entitled No Fury, is starkly different to anything the musician has released before. "Initially I was like, 'Screw it, let’s make it a Summer Cannibals album,' but it just felt like too much of a departure. It’s very pop and [it has] a lot of synth and drum machines.
What a night for it. The skies open and a downpour starts just as we're due to leave the house to witness Wolf Parade's return to Bristol. Trudging towards the harbourside despite the weather, a steady trickle of music fans join us on our pilgrimage towards the floating stage of Thekla, which has recently become a member of the elite venues put under threat because of new development in the city centre.
LiveJournal: the source of all new musical discoveries. Does it seem hard to imagine? You're not alone. These days the social networking site is a shadow of its former self and, by the looks of it, resigned to Russian fanfic. But back in 2005, the blog was propelled by discussions across the platform and fed through copious downloads from now-defunct or spam riddles boards (alongside a healthy slice of Myspace trawling).
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".
