split (Cool Guy)
by Tim Den
A great split between two very impressive bands. Co-ed is female-led, melodic rock that will probably win over Discount fans (particularly since Co-ed is better), while Pollen is pop-punk ala Descendents at its best. I tend to play Pollen’s tracks a bit more simply because there’s more bite and feel to them (Co-ed loses me once in a while when the songs seem to just drag on without drama), but all the songs on this thing are well-worth your time.
