The Plant Lab Videocassette Visual Album, created in several consecutive PNW basements, living rooms, and recording studios, is a full-body psychedelic experience. Previously available only on VHS, this will be the album’s first foray from cathode ray tubes onto the tubes of the internet. Tune in and be transformed! 🌀😦🌀

The music:

Hear it on before the album’s digital release on April 10, 2020! Pre-order the VHS or order the audio cassette on Bandcamp.

  • All songs written, performed and produced by Owen Whitcomb & Brenan Chambers
  • Drums by Max Mendizabl on Grand Hall, Max, Baroque, and Ancients
  • Nich Wilbur engineered parts of Choral and Bubblegum Sun at The Unknown in Anacortes, WA

The visuals:

This visual album is best experienced loud, on a CRT television, under some kind of influence, lying on the floor after taking too hot a bath, and/or projected on the ceiling during a party.

  • Visuals performed and edited by Paul Siple, with contribution by Tyler Johnston on Highway Scenery
  • Logo animation by Travis Wagoner
  • Packaging design by Brenan Chambers
