Video: 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 mixing paint dye, but they're all steps into giving the world better sounding music. So, sure, you might've seen records get made before but there's still something charming about seeing how these ol' vintage sound trappers get cooked up.

The history of smartphone improvement has largely relied on companies cramming faster or more powerful components into the now ubiquitous glass slabs we carry around.
