Team Spirit releasing free Valentine’s Day covers EP (stream it), another EP in April, touring (dates)
by Bill Pearis
Tomorrow is Valentine's Day as you may know. Some folks really enjoy this chance to finally say I love you to that special someone in your life. Others take a more cynical view, echoing the sentiments of Team Spirit's new EP, Love Is For Suckers, which will consists of five garagey covers of classic love songs, mostly '60s pop, but also Meat Loaf's "I Would Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That)." The EP will be a free download on Valentine's Day but you can stream the whole thing right now, below.
Meanwhile, Team Spirit, the band fronted by former Passion Pit member Ayad Al Adhamy, are readying thier first official release for VICE/Warner Bros. It's a five song EP, out April 9, and you can stream "MRDR It's OK" from it below and check out the very NSFW animated video for "Fuck the Beach."
