Well, Hawkwind, of course: Doremi Fasol Latido is my fave, but also love Space Ritual and their debut (more psych, that one).

More recently, Litmus have been ploughing the Hawkwind furough is almighty style. Their debu, You Are Here is a corker.

Otherwise, UFO's second album, Flying, is a hefty one-hour space-rock freak-out, whilst more recent band The Heads somewhat straddle the gap between heavy psych and Space rock, as do Acid Mothers Tample (Univers Zen ou de Zero a Zero or Crystal Rainbow Pyramid Under the Stars are their most space rocky opuses).

Motorpsycho's probably the best recent (part) spacerock act - try "Angels & Demons" or even better: "Roadworks Vol. 1" -- Un Chien D'Espace!!!

Well - what's recent...

Cosmic Jokers

Ash Ra Tempel

early Tangerine Dream (almost not even "rock", but very "space")

Taj Mahal Travellers (not rock either, but "August 1974" double LP is very spacey)

If you just keep listening to this site's music picks of the month you will be enlightened. Also there is a site called, "last.FM" There you can look up bands and hear others with the same appeal. Hope this helps...

As others have pointed out, the early Hawkwind albums (up to and ioncluding "Warrior on the Edge of Time") are the place to start.

I's also add the first 5 Amon Duul II albums, and the first 6 or 7 Man albums (although their spacerock inclinations tend to be counterpointed with a pub-rock earthiness that can sometimes make for a disjointed listening exprience). Early Guru Guru and Ash Ra Tempel, and even some of Funkadelic and Parliament's early albums fit fairly well into the genre too.

In terms of more recent stuff, there's the obvious Spacemen 3 / Spectrum / Spiritualized axis, plus Bardo Pond, Flying Saucer Attack, Windy & Carl, mid-period Flaming Lips, early Mercury Rev (principally "Yerself is Steam" and "Boces") and probably a slew of others I've yet to hear.
