Hljˇ­aklettar is a boutique record label founded and curated by Runar Magnusson (IS/AT) and Sabrina Joy (US). Hljˇ­aklettar is an Icelandic word meaning ┤Wall Of Sound┤, 'The Echo Rocks' or 'Whispering Cliffs'. The word refers to a group of crater plugs depicting basaltic columns in different positions creating various rock patterns. The loose material of those craters was washed away by flood waves originating from the big icecap Vatnaj÷kull, the largest glacier in Southern Iceland. These cliffs cause the sound of a river close by to echo in the area, the sound seemingly coming from the rocks.
