Cuneiform Records is an independent record label based in Silver Spring, Maryland.

The label releases a mixture of musical styles, including progressive jazz, modern fusion music, progressive rock, the Canterbury Scene (and related artists) and electronic music. Cuneiform has introduced many notable new acts over the years, in addition to documenting work of the past, such as its release of the entire Heldon catalog and several archival Soft Machine recordings.
