In a world of wonky tumblr-wave nonsense and no-talent bedroom
synth acts, sometimes you need to pick up a guitar. Ayad Al Adhamy
started Team Spirit in Brooklyn without much of a plan in mind: In
his mid-twenties, he'd already logged time on the road with Passion
Pit, and his indie label Black Bell Records was picking up steam
with releases from the Joy Formidable and Dom, among others. But
his guitar was gathering dust, and Team Spirit was born.
