South Carolina’s Toro Y Moi has had a banner year. The dude went from being a relative nobody to a critical and underground success. His album, Causers of This will surely get a spot on our Best Albums of 2010 list for and the dude is not resting on his laurels. His new album, Underneath the Pine was supposed to drop in 2010, which would make two albums in one year for a new artist. However, his ambition was culled and it will drop on Febuary 22nd, 2011.

Having that said, his latest effort will differ tremendously from Causers of This, as he will be using all live instrumentation this time around for all tracks. Will fans flock to this new sound after settling into his previous effort? Only time will tell.
