You’ve probably heard about this upcoming documentary, Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton (This Is Stones Throw Records) directed by filmmaker Jeff Broadway. We just heard that Stones Throw staple Madlib will be writing and recording the original score.
The doc has Jeff Broadway shadowing the man himself, Peanut Butter Wolf, as well as exploring the imprints left-of-center artists, history, culture and global following.
Along with new recordings from other Stones Throw artists as well as some label classics, Madlib's original music will also be featured on the soundtrack album to be released with the film as part of a 2-Disc DVD/CD Collector's Edition Box Set. The package is currently being offered on Broadway's Kickstarter for the film in exchange for a $50 donation.
The documentary is still in production and definitely could use your support so they can make additional production trips, shoots and the edit of the film. There’s two weeks remaining in the campaign (ends on November 29th) and they’re a little more than halfway to the goal of $35,000.
