Cuneiform Records is an award-winning long-standing independent record label based in Silver Spring, Maryland, founded in 1984. Their catalog bridges the evolution from LP records to Compact Discs to digital downloads and back to LPs again.
The label releases an eclectic mixture of musical styles, all with a Rock in Opposition esthetic, including progressive jazz, jazz fusion, avant-garde progressive rock, the Canterbury scene, and electronic music. Over the years Cuneiform has introduced many notable new acts, but also documents older bands who fit the profile, including its release of the entire Heldon catalog and several archival Soft Machine recordings. The label operates in tandem with a mail-order retailer, Wayside Music, which dates to 1980.
