Recorded in San Francisco with analogue producer John Vanderslice, Lesser Stars captures every nuance of acoustic guitar (often used with non-standard tunings), piano and deftly played bass and drums.
To this framework, Comber adds a cultivated sense of space in which he drops his tales and observations, from the quiet epiphany of Learning Not To Talk to new single Out Of The Ordinary, which offers a bittersweet ending.
