After years of negotiations following the 2016 referendum for the UK to leave the EU, a deal over Brexit was finally hammered out just before the new year. We’re now one month into that deal and many questions remain. Isaac Kaplan-Woolner reports that with new borders, visas, work permits, and taxes, it looks like it will likely mean a lot of complications for UK bands trying to tour Europe.  

We also chat with the London-based band Goat Girl about the themes of climate change, mental health, and gender issues that come up on their new record, On All Fours.
