Seeing How Records Get Made from Beginning to End Is Still Charming

The making of a record isn’t exactly a big mystery but there’s still a bit of old magic in seeing music get put to wax in a factory where the metal gets etched and the vinyl gets stamped out.

Sometimes it looks like they’re making Captain America’s shield and other times it looks like they’re just mixing paint dye but they’re all just steps into giving the world better sounding music.
