Five Things For Friday : Five fave cosmic, disco and spacey rock releases

Five of our fave cosmic disco and spacey rock releases from the past couple of weeks

1. Pocketknife & Cousin Cole : Tamborine Dream
Unmixed version Just released over in the US and soon to drop at select stores in Europe and the UK, this is a special edition of the Tamborine Dream mix, which features unmixed versions of most of the tracks originally used on Tamborine Dream with a few previous only available on a LTD picture disc 12"

2. Quiet Village : Silent Movie
The CD was out last week so get yours now! Personally we are saving our pennies for the 2LP version which is due for release in a couple of weeks from now, but whatever way make sure you have this future classic LP in your collection!

3. Daniele Baldelli & Marco Dionigi : Cosmic Disco? Cosmic Rock

This is a superb seamlessly mixed 18 track mix featuring loads of exclusive edits, stuff played backwards and at the wrong speed! It's full of tough early 1980s new wave chuggers and rocky disco pounders. The 'Cosmic Rock' in the title refers to the number of tracks featuring guitars - this is a hard pounding dancefloor mix from beginning to end with nary a hint of spacey ambience! Available on CD and two separate 12's

4. Commodity Place : No Ordinary Day : Coclea 12"

Excellent 12" featuring two superb Ash Ra/Tangerine Dream-inspired trippy cosmic masterpieces from Italy! A limited edition of only 300 copies and marks the first release of the new Coclea label - keep your eyes peeled for more great music from these guys!

5. Q / Needa : The Voice Of Q : Rustys Dusty Disco 12"
Massively sought after track with original copies from back in 1982 changing hands for a few £'s, Q : Voice of Q has had a naughty bootleg released on Rustys Dusty Disco. 500 copies pressed
