The 22nd Annual Benefit Concert for Tibet House US is taking place this year at Carnegie Hall on February 13. Philip Glass, who is the artistic director for the Tibet House benefits, will perform alongside an as-usual incredible lineup which includes James Blake, Dechen Shak-Dagsay, Laurie Anderson, Rahzel, and more to be announced. Tickets are on sale now via Carnegie Hall and special packages that include a fundraising reception following the performance will be available soon via Tibet House US. More details below.

Philip Glass also has tons of upcoming events in celebration of his 75th birthday.

James Blake, who put out one of our favorite albums of 2011 capped the year off with the three-track Love What Happened Here EP. The title track recalls the material of James' 2010 EPs but throws splashes of funk and R&B with grabbing vocal samples and synthetic horn flourishes. The next track, "At Birth," is a more ambient affair which also brings to mind parts of his earlier work, but the final track, "Curbside," builds off instrumental boom bap and if not for the trademark vocal samples it would sound almost nothing like any of his other material. Buy the EP at eMusic and stream all three of its tracks below.

This is dance music for "smart people" who have little appreciation for James Brown.

I'm gonna have to Pass.
