From Bricolage’s BandCamp page:

Volumes 1 and 2 of our various artists compilations spanned all corners of the globe and provided some fantastic sounds. For Volume 3 we’ve stayed closer to home and delivered a substantial range of tracks that are all products of Scotland. In sticking with the theme of the previous compilations, the sounds are as eclectic as ever. Music from Alpha Skies, Dreamland Fantasy, Nova Noma, Gregor Garnutsi and many more.
