It’s important to understand just how much affection Cuneiform draws from its fans. It’s not a label that follows trends or scenes or, especially, genres. If there’s a label comparison to be had for Cuneiform, you might look to the boundary-pushing, highly curatorial jazz label ECM—a poorer version, Feigenbaum adds. Indeed, Cuneiform pushes those boundaries even harder, specializing in the many outside-genre spaces in the general solar system of left-field jazz, avant-rock, electronic music, and beyond. Cuneiform releases a range from art-rock heavy Soft Machine to ’70s Maryland jazz-rock band the Muffins to post-jazz ensemble the Claudia Quintet. Maybe you can tell already just how hard most of this stuff is to categorize.
