In light of recent Supreme Court rulings, you could be feeling discouraged/shocked/enraged.

The first track, “Signs Up High,” tells small humans (and reminds those already grown) that their voices matter. “Pronoun Party” spotlights gender identity (“let’s celebrate the differences so we can all shine!”) in a kid-accessible way. With an ’80s synth sound, “Girls Included” encourages girls to ignore gender stereotypes and pursue their passions. And with its Latin rhythms, “FOMO” stays super fun while importing a valuable lesson: “It’s OK to miss out sometimes …”

The album from duo Anne Montone (a former Portlander) and Jennifer Cooke is out now.
