SPIN's favorite 17-member disco luxuriants Escort are finally compiling their critically adored five-year run of 12"s into a monumental debut album — we already gave it a glowing review, saying it's "Paradise Garage-worthy"and "hypnotic-ally hooky." Basically, the album should be an easy homereun for anyone who likes Michael Jackson's Off the Wall, Kid Creole & the Coconuts and Tom Tom Club... a.k.a., anyone with a pulse.

Brand new MP3 "Makeover" updates their sound a couple decades with some lush synth textures, sounding like Robyn getting in the DeLorean to jam with Lizzy Mercier Descloux. Whatever's inspiring this, we guarantee there's a lot of sweat and neon. This album comes out today, so run to your local discotheque and tell the DJ to take a coffee break.
