Gravity Records is an influential underground independent record label from San Diego. [Trevor Kelley, "California Screaming". "Alternative Press" 17 (2003), pp. 84-86.] It was formed in 1991 by Matt Anderson, a member of the influential underground band Heroin. It has been central in developing and promoting the "San Diego sound" - an idiosyncratic form of emo and hardcore with very loose, chaotic musicianship and vocals. It is commonly associated with the first wave of screamo. It has also branched out into other forms of experimental or indie music.
