There's a really famous "CD shop" in London where a certain someone likes to spend his time.  This past summer he not only brought me back the His Dark Material series, but he also took a risk and bought a random CD for me which turned out to be quite awesome.  Bats for Lashes was nominated for the Mercury Prize, but lost out to the Klaxons (another band I adore).

Here's one of their standout tracks, along with some psychotically captivating synchronized bike tricks.

It's like Donnie Darko meets OK Go meets Darling Mermaid Darlings on bikes.
