    A whole album of this sort of thing, however, feels like sprinkling white sugar on a supermarket layer cake--it's excessively appealing to only one sense and though it's quite filling it doesn't manage to be nourishing.

    It's another sound defense of the gradually fading chillwave movement, but as far as offering anything new to it, Mansions mostly treads the beaten path.

    Watered down and indistinct, The Inner Mansions falls into the same trap as Toro y Moi's Underneath the Pine and many other chillwave releases: Namely, that it's essentially a too-familiar collage of Holga-kissed sentimentality, running through its nostalgic musical cues like a mindless carousel slide projector.
