Free Friday: Team Spirit - "Love Is For Suckers" EP

Brooklyn garage-pop band Team Spirit is the new project from Ayad Al Adhamy formerly of Passion Pit, whose self-titled debut EP is due out on Vice Records in April.  In anticipation of their debut and in celebration of Valentine’s Day, they have released an EP of love-themed cover songs titled, Love Is For Suckers, as a free download via Vice.    
The band puts their own drunken, gritty guitar-led power-pop take on the 60’s pop and rock-and-roll classics: “Walk Like A Man” by The Four Seasons, “Good Lovin” by The Rascals, “Stay” by The Temptations and “Why Do Fools Fall In Love” by Frankie Lymon & The Teenagers.  And they also punk up the schmaltzy Meatloaf ballad, “I Would Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That)” for good measure.
