Alex Hitrick releases new album “Apple Trees”
Alex Hitrick is no stranger to the local music scene. For seven years, he played parties and events as part of a three-piece band named Hitrick and Brooks. Most recently, he’s played the keyboard for local party band Funk Evolution. However, Hitrick just graduated from The College of Saint Rose’s prestigious music program and knocked out a CD to boot.
Hitrick released “Apple Trees” on Saturday, May 30. It’s an 11-track album with clear influences from a band that often released under Apple Records. The mystery behind this magical reference is completely intentional to avoid lofty comparisons, but a tour of this work is well worth the listen under today’s current events.
“Blueberry Blue Dream,” a zany trip with a cacophony of instruments jammed into all four minutes and 31 seconds of the song, sets the tone for an extended light-hearted listening experience.
