'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.

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 inception in 1996. Catalog highlights include hip-hop classics like Madvillain’s Madvillainy, Dilla’s Donuts and Quasimoto’s The Unseen; 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 that put Stones Throw on the map, 'Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton (This Is Stones Throw Records)' delves into the label's enigmatic history, culture and global following.
