Looks familiar? Can you guess who are the components of this hybrid ?
Here’s a hint: its an awesome triple-whammy use of alliteration for the letter “W.”

Saint Bartlett is coming! All pre-orders of Damien Jurado‘s upcoming record (in stores on 5/25) will receive an instant MP3 download of the whole shebang.
