Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Not to be outdone by Best Coast and WAAVES, whose Christmas song for Target ("Got Something for You") has been all the chatter around the water cooler this week, Breathe Carolina has penned a new Christmas song specifically for those of us in the Mile High City -- well, sort of. It's a called "Mile High Christmas," and hoo boy, is it ever a fitting ditty for this here city!

The tune, slated to appear on its label's forthcoming ...Tis The Season To Be Fearless comp -- alongside songs from labelmates For All Those Sleeping, the Maine, Go Radio, Amely, Sparks the Rescue, Let's Get It, Artists vs Poet -- "Mile High Christmas" is basically an ode about getting Santa, ahem, a mile high with "special cookies" and then worrying if he can steer his sleigh all right with the astute observation: "'Cause I won't get shit next year if you die." Sure to be a classic, ...Tis The Season To Be Fearless drops next week.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
