Imagine: A Morrissey album release with basically zero drama! With his last album, 2014’s World Peace Is None Of Your Business, Morrissey ended up in a feud with his record label, and the album itself ended up pulled from online retailers, streaming services, and record store shelves. But today, Moz releases his new album Low In High School, and thus far, nothing like that has happened.
Earlier this year, U2 showed up on “XXX.,” a song from Kendrick Lamar’s shattering DAMN. album. But U2 were barely on it, and it sounded a bit like Kendrick was sampling a U2 song that didn’t yet exist. That might’ve been what happened, sort of. U2’s new album Songs Of Experience is about to arrive, and we’ve posted the early tracks “You’re The Best Thing About Me” and “Get Out Of Your Own Way,” the latter of which features Kendrick.
Last month, the Australian songwriter and recent-vintage Stereogum Artist To Watch Alex Lahey cranked out I Love You Like A Brother, a debut album jammed with nervous, wiry pop-punk hooks. And last night on Late Night With Seth Meyers, Lahey made her first-ever TV appearance. (Or at least Meyers said it was her TV debut; if Lahey has ever shown up on Australian television, I haven’t been able to find it.)
@max_read My favorite thing about that is that it takes place in a world where Japanese teenagers of 2013ish were really into Juelz Santana & flip phones, which is weirdly plausible if you squint hard enough.
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".
