OUR VINYL WEIGHS A TON (THIS IS STONES THROW RECORDS) is a feature-length documentary about avant-garde Los Angeles-based record label Stones Throw Records, its culture and its enigmatic artists. Under the direction of founder and world-renowned DJ Peanut Butter Wolf, Stones Throw has consistently released critically acclaimed, left-of-center albums since its founding in 1996.

Catalog highlights include hip-hop classics like Madvillain’s Madvillainy, Dilla’s Donutsand Quasimoto’s The Unseen. They also include retro-soul hits such as Mayer Hawthorne’s A Strange Arrangement and Aloe Blacc’s Good Things, Dam-Funk’s boogie-funk masterpiece Toeachizown, and the oddball works of James Pants and Gary Wilson. Drawing on live concert footage, never-before-seen archival material, inner-circle home video and photographs and in-depth interviews with the folks who put Stones Throw on the map, OUR VINYL WEIGHS A TON will delve deeper into the label’s enigmatic artists, history, culture and global following.

Our Vinyl Weighs a Ton (This is Stones Throw Records) premieres at the LA Film Festival, June 21 & 22.  Info & tickets at lafilmfest.com.  Be sure to visit Stones Throw Records to check for screenings in a city near you!
