ONO's recent album, Red Summer, is a forceful sonic exploration of what the lead singer calls the "bleeding haints" of U.S. society. It resounds (with) erased histories—from August 20, 1619, when enslaved Africans were first forcibly brought to Point Comfort, to the Tuskegee syphilis experiments and the anti-Black violence of the Red Summer of 1919. It speaks from roots deep in the south side of Chicago, a place of ongoing racialized violence.
