A Collection of Calamity Volume 3 is the latest in a series of free download albums of local talent compiled by Leeds rehearsal studio The Rock And Roll Circus. Previous volumes have included This Many Boyfriends, The Rosie Taylor Project, Wonderswan (are they still active, by the way?) and Just Handshakes (We're British); the latest collection, when not hair metalling, keeps average quality levels high, including something unreleased from Honour Before Glory and the aforeposted Post War Glamour Girls. From the new names to us we've picked out Backyards (the Soundcloud embed is from their own profile), controlled emotiveness with electronic burbling underneath and understated hooks heightened by violin and yearning above.
