The Naysayer's new record Smoke Reality was designed to mess up your mind. Anna Padgett is the Naysayer: A Texan/Louisianan Brooklyn transplant whose lyrics may shock you, confuse you, make you laugh out loud, turn red, or feel like puking. Despite the ganja vibe evoked by the title, you don't have to be on drugs to enjoy Smoke Reality. Anna's straight thoughts are way more psychedelic than your stoned ones. Expertly recorded by Tara Jane O'Neil in the Oregon woods, with amazing drumming by Geoff Soule (Fuck) and additional instrumentation provided by Tara Jane and Elizabeth Venable, Smoke Reality challenges the unwritten rule of current music writing: classify, categorize, stick everything in a bag. In keeping with her previous four releases, the Naysayer continues to say no to facile codification. This is bagless music, people!
