“I can remember for that Good Natured Threat`s Short Stories EP (2011, Melodica) was reviewed at RMH in March which provides an organic shift between club dance-esque cadences and more pop-oriented visions. GNT used to exist as the cooperative project of Mark and Lara Hjorthoy, a pair from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada (you know the home city for the Canucks, a hockey team). Anyway, Mark is this time alone, yet, continuing to run on the similar way, more concretely, by amalgamating suggestive trip-hop/downtempo/dub-oscillating beats into the set of gleaming upper layers of sounds. There is even hinted at the resemblance with Durutti Column, a British art-rock/post-punk legend (I can only agree with it). The 4-track publication seems to be more bigger than the mere sum of its particles. Indeed, it is seamless, organic, it can even be considered as a holistic masterpiece. Listen to it!”

“Tres Catorce, a good netlabel coming from Northern Spain, introduces this EP of SoftClip, by Canadian Mark Hjorthoy, the male half of the group Good Natured Threat, reviewed here with the “Short Stories EP”. This EP, “Between The Land And The Sky” is a seductive collection of soft electronics and warm keyboards that send you back to eighties synth POP, light rhythmic guitars and mid tempo lines reminicent of Boards of Canada, one of the project's influences musically. Pleasant and relaxing.”
