About This Blog
Post Rock is a blog about music. Not just rock music. Certainly not just post-rock. Rock, pop, hip-hop, country, R&B, maybe even the Wiggles. It is written by J. Freedom du Lac and David Malitz.
J. Freedom du Lac is the pop music critic for The Washington Post. He likes Dobros, 808 kick drums, rainy day women Nos. 23 and 43 and long walks with the Beach Boys classic, "Pet Sounds," on his headphones. He did not like getting chewed out backstage by Timothy B. Schmit. He's great with 4/4 and 3/4 time but struggles with compound time signatures, such as 9/8. J. Freedom is a native of San Francisco, having been born on Haight Street to a pair of hippies. Thus, the middle name. And no, you can't be his plus-one.
David Malitz is the music editor for washingtonpost.com. He likes going to too many rock shows, watching too many Portland Trailblazers games after those rock shows and eating too many Bagel Bites. He's pretty sure that "Can You Get to That" is the greatest song of all time. He's got a real problem with bridges (not the kind you drive or walk on). When he gets drunk he just might tell you to pick some numbers at random and then suddenly start singing a Pavement song.
