All this week we'll be presenting you with some of the finest Record Stores Reykjavík has to offer. First up is the legendary 12 Tónar.

Following its arrival in 1998, the store quickly became a second home to some of Reykjavík's brightest stars (Björk and Sigur Rós in particular). With a creative community bubbling up around them, they decided to start their own label in 2003: "Our position as a record label is unique as we regularly meet with so many musicians in our shop. We are therefore in constant contact with emerging talent and the label is taking off very rapidly."

We've visited a lot of incredible Record Stores over the past year or so - it's a project we're working on - but please believe us when we tell you how perfect this place is.

"The 12 Tónar shop is known as a friendly place where you can sit down, listen to a wide selection of music on two floors, enjoy free espresso or tea, read magazines and relax." Simple, but effective.

The shop can be found on Skólavörðustígur 15, in downtown Reykjavík. For more information, head here.
