This California duo, Polyphemus, specializes in vaguely British sounding folky psychedelia, with plenty of fuzzed-out electric guitars riding on top of pristinely strummed acoustic guitars on Scrapbook of Madness. It’s an overly familiar formula, sure, but it adds up to more than a scrapbook of college-rock styles, with an overall hummability quotient far higher than that of most alternative albums.
