As summer starts to wrap up and we get closer to the rush of new fall releases, a big day of new releases arrives on this new music Friday. Among the long list of worthwhile records to check out today is the latest from The Mountain Goats, Bleed Out, which is out now via Merge Records. The album was produced by Alicia Bognanno of Bully, and it’s inspired by action movies from the 1970s and ’80s. The group previously released a handful of singles from the album, including “Training Montage,” but now the record is available to hear in its entirety.
