Recording An Album With My Friend

So my friend and I have started a collaboration and are in the process of recording an album before we split up for college. The feel is kind of likea combination of post-rock, alternative rock, and progressive. Here's a list of digs, influences, and what our stuff sounds similar to. On a side note, I am seeing KARNIVOOl in a few weeks! :D
Sound Awake

I'm seeing them in a few weeks, and they influence my writing a bit.

Some influences here for some riffs and an art rock style.
Sing The Word Hope in Four-Part Harmony

Instrumental rock inspiration.
Mr. Beast

Mr Beast somewhat influenced a few songs of mine.
5The Mars Volta
The Bedlam in Goliath

Mutual dig.
Hail to the Thief

Radiohead overall has been an inspiration for our atmosphere and alternative rock feel.
7Explosions in the Sky
The Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place
The Four Trees

Post rock like EitS and Caspian have heavily influenced my style and atmosphere.
El Cielo

El Cielo is a recent dig of mine and is beginning to be an influence.
Everyone Into Position

This band has overall changed the way I think about music.
11Tides of Man
Empire Theory

Recent dig of mine. The lighter stuff has slightly influenced my writing.
12Closure in Moscow
First Temple

A recent dig, but it's too eclectic to be an influence.
13Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to

GY!BE mostly influenced my weird experimental side.
14 Jazz

It doesn't show in our music, but jazz has been a long time influence in my life.
15 Myself

Okay, so the biggest influence is myself. My music is something that is very personal, and no influences, no matter how big, can really leave a big enough mark to outweigh my own personality to it.
