Super cool record store that's cozy and comfortable. As soon as we entered, the guy manning the desk asked us if we needed any help and if we needed a coffee. The store is jammed with all the Icelandic music you could wish for, and I was surprised by the number of LPs they carried. They also had a limited selection of t-shirts, posters, and hats.
We found some CDs that 12 Tonar made available for preview, so after selecting a few, we found several listening stations in the "family room" appointed with squashy sofas and cafe tables. It was so nice to be able to pop in a CD, slip on some high-quality headphones, and sit back on the comfortable couch. I felt like I was in a good friend's house.
The basement contained even more records, and the bathroom is behind the curtain. Fair warning: the shop maintained an air of clutter and organized messiness, just like a good friend's house.
Prices are sky high to records in the USA, but we didn't mind paying for some of the artists we knew we'd never find back home. Definitely make a stop if you have time in Reykjavik!
