Yeah yeah yeah Show your bones!

Hey

I am recording a band in a few weeks, just looking for some tips and tricks!

Really liking the sound of Yeah yeah Yeahs 'Show your Bones' album.

The space I am recording in is pretty good. Treated room, fairly small though so I am not going to get a big open washy sound as in the 'Show your bones' album, but it will be tight and focused. Therein lies the problem. Once I have done the tracking I will be mixing the record itb.

What techniques do you guys use to get a sense space in your recordings when recording in a deadish room? I never seem to be able to get artificial reverb to sit in a way that feels real to me.

I was thinking of tracking the drums recorderman style for overheads and m/s room mics in front of the kit. with a few milliseconds delay. Albini style. Maybe chuck a 57 in a corner and compress the hell out of it also.

Also the guitars on this track have lots of depth? Any tips there? Do you think I can achieve this sense of space with the correct use of artificial reverb? if so what would be your first choice?

Here is a link to one of the tracks on the album. Sounds 10x better on the cd. Youtube is a joke. anyway.

Yeah yeah yeahs - Way Out - YouTube

Any help would be much appreciated!

Cheers
