2002 Dallas Show Download
There is a brand new Hem show for free streaming and download at Go get it! It is actually an old show from August 13, 2002 at Deep Ellum Live in Dallas, TX. This is one of Hem's first shows in the US from when they toured with Beth Orton. You can find the setlist here - it's mostly Rabbit Songs, with a little Eveningland (including the early version of "Carry Me Home") and No Word From Tom (with an assist from Beth Orton). Since Hem was the opening act, there is a bit of crowd chatter/noise, but it's a nice, clear recording. (Thanks, Stephan!) There are a number of other Hem shows at, and if you don't have those, now would be an excellent time to correct that grievous error.

Departure and Farewell Update
If you had seen Hem's Steve Curtis play as part of Little Silver yesterday in Cambridge, MA, you would already know this Hem news, but I'm here for sharing (you're welcome). Departure and Farewell, Hem's upcoming album, is looking at an Autumn release. You may not have to wait even that long for new Hem songs, though, so stay tuned! One of the new songs you can look forward to hearing is "The Jackpine," (song #15 on the Departure and Farewell album page), which has been in Little Silver's repertoire for a while and is one of the songs the group played in Cambridge.
