Need help identifying an album I heard/saw.

This is a case of forgetting to write something down. I was in a record shop in the Georgetown neighborhood of Seattle, and the shopkeep was spinning a record that I enjoyed a made a mental note to look the band/album up when I got home. And now a night has passed and the details I remember are coming up with nada when googled. The details: 1. The band name was something that ended in "-ex", like Solex or Purex. I remember thinking it kinda sounded like it could be the name of a condom. 2. The clerk said it was released "last year" (he could have meant 2011 or 2012). 3. The album cover was a letterboxed (think Joy Division's "Closer") picture of a rose and a chain, the rest of the cover was red.

Please describe the type of music you heard. Loud guitars? Electro boops and beeps? Soft folky stuff? That would help.

Why not go back to the shop and ask them?

I intend to call the shop tonight (assuming the guy works the same shift on a day-to-day basis)

Music was similar to the more recent albums from The Church (post-progressive-80s-throwback-psych-rock?). If there were vocals, I don't remember hearing any.
