These are not newly released, but "The Short Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao" by Junot Diaz and "The Ecstatic" by Victor D. LaValle are fantastic.

Earlier work by Lethem, esp. "Motherless Brooklyn" is great and Richard Powers' "Three Farmers on the Way to a Dance" and "Operation Wandering Souls" are incredible.
