Portico - Shape To Form
If I had to compare Portico to another band, I'd say imagine Paramore then soften the sound up, lessen the highs of the vocals, and imagine sipping hot chocolate and instead moshing, simply relaxing.
Thus, you would have Portico. Nearly flawless is a phrase to describe this release. The slight repetition through the album is slightly irking, but not to the point of breaking it over your knee. Lyn's voice is spectacular. Not out of control but powerful and very awe-inspiring.
Song 10 is an excellent intro. Starting slow and catching up to an amazing pace towards the end. The pattern is noticeable through and through. Simply amazing.

I was introduced to Portico when they opened for the Pants Situation and I was so impressed that I bought their CD as soon as they were done their set. I was pleasantly surprised to find excellent production quality on the CD which sounds full and velvety for such stripped down arrangements. Sean hit on the major selling point which is Lyn's voice ... absolutely captivating.
