Filtering searches involving multiple collections
At the moment, selections for each individual filter are treated as an "OR" operation, and selections from different filters are treated as an "AND" operation. What this means, if is if I select two artists, Artist A and Artist B from the additional filters, and then I select Genre "Rock", this basically says: Find any song that has either Artist A or Artist B and has Rock as a genre. If you added a second Genre like Folk, then it would be, find any song that has either Artist A or Artist B and either Rock or Folk. Hopefully that makes sense.

What I want to do in the future is have an advanced search option for users where they can construct a more complex query, i.e. Artist="Artist A" AND "Artist B" OR Genre="Rock" OR Album = "Album A"

The reason I've avoided this so far is typing on a tablet is tedious so I didn't want users to have to try to type all that in with a virtual keyboard. Now that there is a Windows 10 version and many tablets have keyboard attachments or users can use a bluetooth keyboard, perhaps this isn't as big a deal.
