Great, just what the world needs: more enthusiasm for something Beatles-related. It's a little tiresome, after all, this relentless fawning. Seems like every fiscal quarter something else pops up: an anniversary, reissue, Cirque du Soleil production, documentary, or surprising new solo album. Can't we give it a rest and focus on, say, the Kinks, James Brown or Pulp for a while? PHOTOS: The Early Beatles Collection Not while a Beatle's still making records as consistent and well-crafted as "New.

During his headlining set at KCRW's World Festival at the Hollywood Bowl on Sunday night, Maine-based singer-songwriter Ray LaMontagne used his yearning, raspy voice and barely there folk strumming to induce maximum snuggling among the assembled couples.

Is Alex Clare a singer or a song? In October this bearded Brit reached No. 7 on the Hot 100 with “Too Close,” a dubstep-inflected power ballad originally released on YouTube in early 2011. Co-produced by the cool-hunting hitmaker Diplo, the track took off after it was featured in a Microsoft commercial that aired heavily on TV during coverage of the London Olympics. But take a look at Clare's peak-week company on the chart - Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Pink -- and you might wonder if he just went along for the ride.

THE West Hollywood cafe is an inviting place to pass the time, with sunlight filtering into the room on a fine, late-summer afternoon. But this is not where Ray LaMontagne wants to be. "I don't like being in L.A.," he says. "I have no desire to be in L.A. It doesn't excite me, it doesn't make me feel good.... It's the same with a lot of places throughout the country and the world. I don't really want to go to Paris. Honestly. I like to be on my piece of land. I like to be in New England."

The moment singer-songwriter Ray LaMontagne made his unassuming way onto the Avalon stage on Thursday, the buzzing crowd in the cavernous venue, which regularly reverberates with slamming rock and thumping dance music, fell as silent as an audience at the famously quiet little Fairfax District nightclub Largo.

RAY LAMONTAGNE -- a reluctant troubadour ["A Reluctant Troubadour," Nov. 5]? The notion is just ludicrous! If a music career is such a burden to him, he should stay home on his farm in Maine. No one is forcing him to do what he does. If he wanted to disappear forever, he has that option. If being a songwriter is what he really wants out of life, he doesn't have to tour. He could focus on writing and never have to leave the confines of his cabin (especially now that he has "a name")
