After charming with her 2010 solo debut There Will Be Stars, Elisapie Isaac drops the last name and returns with an all-out pop album. Surrounding herself with a crew of talented men, from co-songwriter Jim Corcoran to Patrick Watson bandmembers Robbie Kuster (drums) and Simon Angell (bass), and producers Éloi Painchaud and François Fontaine, she embraces the esthetics of Abba and Blondie en route to a wonderfully peppy song cycle that should introduce her to a much broader audience. Opener The Beat is an utterly hummable ditty about musical/romantic emancipation; For Me (featuring local folk-rocker Bradd Barr) sounds like an early Bran Van hymn; Salluit pays touching tribute, in Inuktitut and English, to her hometown in Nunavik; while The Earth Moved has a steady groove and a classic feel. Giddy, soulful and intuitively infectious, Travelling Love finds Elisapie in her element.
