Let's Pretend Records will soon release Plastic Pompeii, the debut album from The Mimes of Cincinnati, OH. 

While it's the first record under The Mimes name, the band features musicians from the Cincinnati scene who may be recognized for their work with Vacation, Mixtapes, Homeless Gospel Choir, Ogikubo Station, and more, with a lineup of Maura Weaver, Megan Schroer, and John Hoffmon.

The record was produced and mixed by the band while adhering to pandemic restrictions. Similarly, the band has self-produced their own videos, including the brand new "The Ugliest One" and the previousily shared "Cereal," both of which we've shared below.
