This is the cool kind of song that Quentin Tarantino would use to soundtrack a gun fight between Santa and all the bad children wanting revenge and it’ll improve your Christmas no end.

6 Year-old Jet Watling may just have produced the best original Christmas song this year. With its dirty horn section, tremolo guitars and undeniably cute delivery, “Reindeer Romp & Roll” feels like a new classic on par with the kitschy Yuletide ditties made famous in the 50′s and 60′s. This spaghetti western-styled carol is ONE OF THE MANY STAND OUT TRACKS from the new holiday compilation album, A Colorful Christmas, from Fetal Records.

In some ways, this album can be seen as an exploration of the true meaning of Christmas: getting out of one’s comfort zone and accepting the full diversity of the people who adhere to the Christian faith. Well worth a listen, A Colorful Christmas will add color to both your Christmas and perhaps even to your perception of the world.

Fetal Records has created a different type of Christmas album that we really enjoyed. In a land where every holiday album tends to sound the same, this one stands apart from the crowd. We’d highly recommend picking this up if you get a chance!

..a 21-song-long Christmas and winter-themed compilation album entitled A Colorful Christmas that challenges and changes the expectations of what a ‘various artists’ Christmas album is all about. The album features the record label’s artists performing original songs and covers across the blues, spiritual, singer-songwriter, reggae (and more!) genres, presenting a diverse array of musical styles and moods. The aural mix is eclectic to say the least, but contains some entertaining and interesting tunes.

Each song captures a quality that seems to be lacking in the polished and glamoured advantages of mega stars that are coming out with their own version of a Christmas album. That being said, A Colorful Christmas takes on an everlasting character offering a story based around the holiday.

If there's a flaw to "A Colorful Christmas", it's that it's over too soon. I wanted more. And that's always a good sign.
