Occupy This Album released - lossless downloads?

As Mogwai noted on their Facebook page, Occupy This Album, the 4-CD compilation benefiting the Occupy movement, was released this week. The album includes the previously-unreleased Mogwai track 'Earth Division'.

Does anyone know whether it's possible to buy lossless downloads of this compilation on a track-by-track basis, and if so where from? I'm sure I'm not the only person who has no interest in cluttering up the house with a compilation I'll never listen to, but I would be more than happy to pay a premium to get hold of the tracks I want to hear in lossless format.

I haven't come across any lossless downloads yet. Boomkat and Bandcamp are the only sites I know of that offer legal FLAC downloads. I wish Amazon or Google Music offered FLAC downloads. That would give them a definite edge over iTunes in my book (though it should be noted that I haven't purchased any music via iTunes in at least three years). If I come across any lossless downloads I'll share the info with you.

In the meantime, the Mogwai track - "Earth Division" - can be stream at Occupy This Album's Soundcloud page:
