Skífan is a chain of music stores in Iceland. I forget where I read about it – possibly the Lonely Planet site – but when I noticed it as I was exploring one of Reykjavik’s main shopping drags, Laugavegur, I recognized it and went in.

The location I visited wasn’t very large, but it was cozy and inviting (like most places I saw there). My favorite band (Múm) is Icelandic, as are several other bands I like, so I thought it’d be a good idea to get a recommendation for some new Icelandic music to listen to IN ICELAND. Right?

Next week, find out what bands the cuuuute Icelandic dude working there recommended to me. : )
