HEAVY BREATHING, from Washington DC, have essentially been around for fifteen years. The core trio: ERICK JACKSON, handling the axes, from bass to guitars; JEFF SCHMID, the drummer, who has now moved center stage; and AMANDA KLEINMAN, playing synths and organs, made 6 records as THE APES, with three different vocalists; they then solved their singer problems by changing their name to Heavy Breathing and using found sounds from the World Wide Web in lieu of the old, clich├Ęd human singer. Airtight is their second record as Heavy Breathing, and their Black Sabbath-inflused riffrock is in a business funk suit with party calls coming from the Rhythm Machine, Erick's guitars galloping, Jeff's drums thumping four all over the floor, and Amanda's keys playing Jon-Lord-alongside-BernieWorrell. Recorded at home, built in the box, Erick's hard rock riffs are still the songwriting foundation; but a track like "Touch It" has the emotional R&B of the Commodores' "Night Shift." "Eazy" has a boogie beat, a head banging riff, Terry Riley keys, and resolves to power chords with a thudding kick on the One. On "Getting Down," the Rhythm Machine sings "Deny!", juxtaposed with "Dance, dance, getting down," making the choice yours: Boogie with this record; or reject convention, authority, and dogma, and get down and boogie with this record. Edition of 300 copies.
