Stones Throw Records Will Self-Distribute Documentary Bio 'Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton' (Details + Trailer)
1
OUR VINYL WEIGHS A TON
Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton is a feature-length documentary about the Los Angeles-based record label Stones Throw Records. 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 MadvillainyDilla’s Donuts and 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 (as opposed to Public Enemy's Miuzi Weighs A Ton) promises to delve deeper into the label's enigmatic artists, history, culture and global following.

Directed by Jeff Broadway, the film is produced by Broadway and Sébastien Bauer, and will feature Peanut Butter Wolf, Kanye West, Madlib, Common, Questlove, Talib Kweli, Flying Lotus, Mike Diamond and others.

It'll made its World Premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival in 2013, and, announced today, Stones Throw Records has revealed that the company will self-distribute the documentary, starting with a week-long screening tour around the UK at the end of this month.
