How can I use spaces in my search query in ncmpc (window 5), when looking for a particular type of tag?

For example,

artist:radiohead

works. But,

artist:owl city

doesn't. I've tried thing like:

artist:'owl city'
artist:"owl city"
artist:owl\ city
artist:{owl city}

but none of that works.

Thank you

Reason enough to install ncmpcpp... –  jasonwryan Feb 26 '12 at 3:59
    
@jasonwryan: I tried it, but it seemed to use a lot more resources than ncmpc. –  Aeon Feb 27 '12 at 18:30

Looks like artist:owl%city does the trick.
