The Inside Track: Slender Dan 'Time Is Running Out'

From Slender Dan-

If you're paying attention at all, it's actually pretty scary right now. Between the news and social media it feels like we're entering end times. On top of that, there seems to be a lot of confusion between what is opinion and what is fact, and it's getting harder to express nuanced opinions. Sometimes these nuanced opinions go against the herd, and that can feel really isolating. This song is our way of expressing our frustration toward what feels like an ever increasing pull to see things as binary, when in reality these are complex issues and we think there's a lot of grey area to be found. 

'Time Is Running Out' is from the new 3/2/23 release:

/ɡəˈSHtält/ - noun
an organized whole that is perceived as more than the sum of its parts

GESTALT is a 1 hour long, 19 track, avant-garde electronic album. With 13 songs and 6 interludes, Slender Dan presents a sobering critique of modern Orwellian forces- commenting on such topics as propaganda, censorship, the lack of consensus on truth, and the attempt to remain sane in the midst of insane times.
