The Cup & The Lip (mP3)
Formatted as a two-act play, The Cup & The Lip follows its elusive protagonist through a series of small scale dramas. Our hero rides a ten-speed through damp city streets and bonds with a bust of Elvis, catapults a car skyward and sets fire to a past life. In the final scenes, this underdog adventurer lies face-up on the table, chest cracked open to bare a cold paper heart.
