Sonic Boom now pressing vinyl in Toronto

You can now have limited edition vinyl pressed at Sonic Boom's new Spadina digs. No, it's not Record Store Day* yet, but this isn't an exclusive, one-day deal: after all, real music fans are at record shops year round.

Andy March of Monotype Audio Disk Cutting (and Toronto label Craft Singles and band Crosss, one of the city's loudest musical offerings), is producing what is actually a pretty dainty craft product: full colour lathe picture discs which hold about 7 minutes of music per side.

March says he'll press between one record to a run of fifty, and that the discs play in mono at 33rpm. He'll ship to "anywhere," which may draw the interest of some labels based outside Toronto.

Pressing happens live in store Friday - Sunday, 10am - midnight. All you have to do is bring in your music and your picture and wait for the magic to happen in mere minutes. A one-off single pressing costs $14.99, with larger runs priced at varying levels - talk it out in shop, or email Monotype Audio ahead (larger pressings will take more time).

Your music-loving friend who has everything now doesn't - unless they heard about this before you did.

*Monotype do promise "a special limited something something" for Record Store Day.
