Anyone who grew up hooked on the crackle of vinyl, with two lovers in strum and jangle and whose paisley shirt took pride of place in the wardrobe will find that Aero Modeller's album is a trip down memory lane which also manages to sound fresh and new.

These 10 instrumentals by the late Dublin musician Derrick Dalton (Crumb, Hey Paulette) are home studio treasures - sweet, catchy and brimming with the infectious energy of a fan following a dream.

Your stylus will make new friends wherever it goes and while the record comes with a download code, this joy is best savoured in the round as thoughts and melodies swirl together and you get the chance to sneak a kiss at the turntable halfway through.

It won't be long until you're puckering up at the start and finish too.
