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
1Karnivool
Sound Awake


I'm seeing them in a few weeks, and they influence my writing a bit.
2Thrice
Vheissu


Some influences here for some riffs and an art rock style.
3Maybeshewill
Sing The Word Hope in Four-Part Harmony


Instrumental rock inspiration.
4Mogwai
Mr. Beast


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


Mutual dig.
6Radiohead
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
8Caspian
The Four Trees


Post rock like EitS and Caspian have heavily influenced my style and atmosphere.
9Dredg
El Cielo


El Cielo is a recent dig of mine and is beginning to be an influence.
10Oceansize
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.
