Hidden by These New Puritans. Just came out this week. Terrific album, amazing sound engineering. It's like a mixture of Radiohead, Animal Collective, Joy Division, and chamber music.

iTunes is now at 256 kbps, like Amazon, which is a big improvement over 128 but still not lossless. Lossless downloads are still relatively rare.
