The sequel to Tove Lo's raw Lady Wood,
like her stylized longform videos, deals explicitly with derangement – sexual,
emotional, drug-induced. It'd be easy to dismiss as softcore shock-pop if
her songwriting wasn't so formidable. The nicely-titled "Disco Tits" is
a lustily convincing club single; "Don't Ask Don't Tell" and "Struggle"
tunefully unpack messy relationship psychology, E.M. Forster's "only connect" repurposed for the dancefloor.
In the program notes to his scruffy, roaring Velvet Underground tribute at the Brooklyn Academy of Music last night, John Cale noted he's "reluctant to spend too much time on things past." Fair enough. But as foundational member and key sonic architect of a band that ranks with rock's greatest, he's earned a victory lap. And 50 years – the time passed since the game-changing 1967 LP The Velvet Underground & Nico – is a long time.
Quiz: Morrissey's endless, withering disdain for
cultural hypocrisy might get wearisome if not for A) his equally-relentless
tenderness, B) his Wildean wit, C) the truth of his observations. Yes, it's D)
all of the above. "Society's hell," he reminds us near the start of
his latest offering, "you need me just like I need you." We do, and
timing couldn't be better. "Stop watching the news!" he says.
I wrote about last night's Velvet Underground tribute, which was a blast. Cale ain't going gently into any good night -- bless his fiercely loud, drone-loving soul. https://t.co/tIynhZBZv5@RollingStone
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".
