Currently Digging: Escort

This New York duo has been making disco-inspired tracks for five or six years now, and they’ve finally compiled enough jams for a full-length. Taking a refined approach to the escapist 70’s genre, Escort brings a non-stop party that’s a joy to put on repeat. Hidden beneath the veneer of abandonment lies some pretty stellar production work, and some undeniable catchiness, as is evidenced on tracks like “Makeover” and the cheesy sendup “A Sailboat In the Moonlight.” These guys cover all the bases of disco, and don’t take the music too seriously. Because as any music historian will tell you, it never was that serious to begin with.
