Lloyd and Michael is the sound of friendship. It is the sound of freedom .” 

Always is the one man project of Melbourne, Australia’s Alex Vivian. Drums and vocals loop and create a paranoiac pop form stripped to its essentials. “(Always) loops his frail, Australian-accented voice, intoning queer slogans (“Bear pride equals power/ Bear pride equals freedom”) over and over until these phrases stop affirming and start deforming. Gradual undercurrents of doubt (“Safety in numbers/ Or a community?”) intrude into the chanting, and just as the self-harmonizing takes off, he starts grasping maniacally at the words (“Freedom! Freedom! Power! Power!”) as if they were birds in flight, evasive and barely real. Simple, powerful, and very odd.” – Drew Daniel (Matmos) on Pitchfork
