ABOUT THE ALBUM
The Port of Lopez EP is the debut release from Winnipeg folk-rockers Odder than the Otters (Cody Goertzen, Adam Hill, Joe Johnson, Mitch Kruse). It was officially released on April 5, 2018 at The Good Will - Social Club, where the Otters shared the stage with Two Crows for Comfort and The Bloody Historians.
The album was recorded and mixed in 2017 at Paintbox Recording in Winnipeg with Lloyd Peterson (The Weakerthans, The Wailin' Jennys, Big Dave McLean) and mastered by Jamie Sitar at Outta Town Sound (Bif Naked, Randy Bachman, Chilliwack, Swollen Members, Classified).
The majority of songs on the album were inspired by Goertzen and Hill's stay in the coastal South American town of Puerto Lopez, Ecuador in the winter of 2016. Many of the songs were written in Puerto Lopez, and some were even conceived at sing-a-long beach parties.
The musical personnel on the EP include Cody Goertzen (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Adam Hill (drums), Joe Johnson (lead guitar), Mitch Kruse (bass), Lloyd Peterson (organ), Steve Tapley (percussion) and Morgan Emms (backing vocals).
The Otters’ first single, “Hola Luna,” was released on March 14, 2018 and followed with the official music video. “Hola Luna” recently made “top 50 finalist as judged by CBC Music producers,” selected from thousands of entries in the CBC Searchlight 2018 competition.
