Just released on CD and iTunes, The Frank Horvat Band’s second album, Strange Machine!
These songs will grant one rare access to peer into the soul of a quintessential artist and tormented soul that none of us can get enough of.
– Thom Ellis, Indie Music Reviews
The songs themselves are extremely unique, highly original… The sound-scapes are interesting, infectious, and hypnotic. The grooves and rhythms are methodical and well placed and the ambient accents are well placed and flow and ebb extremely well song for song. I like the multi vocal delivery from Aucoin/Cooper, Duncan, Gill and Williams. The CD has some truly impressive moments on it showcasing an impressive songwriting and arranging core craft. This CD has something for just about everyone. It’s definitely a dynamic and somewhat electro-progressive that offers a lot of musical variety and vivid sound imagery that push the envelope.

Strange Machine extols nothing but pure energy and comes straight from the speakers directly to your heart and soul. This style of music is all about the here and now, and maximizing all available senses to the process. In this aspect you will love The Frank Horvat Band.
– Tom McCrae, All Whats Rock
Straight away it’s clear this 10 song CD “Strange Machine” is an imaginative return to passion filled Electronic Rock fused with the better musical touches of today’s Hard Alternative Rock… It’s true much of today’s music has many people feeling a bit of soullessness – how appropriate I get a CD as in depth as “Strange Machine.” As a composer/programmer/songwriter Frank Horvat is a bit of a musical mastermind.

I was instantly hooked to keep listening…Subject matter is equally tied to musical setting and delivers well-crafted vocals and emotional tranquility. Equal parts heartfelt emotion and soaring moogs/synths, Horvat and company paint images in creative yet relatable ways… It’s evident to the ear that much time has been invested in crafting each song to stand on its own, separate from the next…Overall, this is a very impressive release by The Frank Horvat Band and it was an absolute pleasure to get into his mindset and listen to…Frank Horvat is a master at bringing together all the flavors of many different musical styles and genres. He is armed with great writing, a brilliant creative mindset. His music is highly original and will no doubt evolve over time into something truly groundbreaking.
