Free advertising for my beloved Hem.

Oh, oh, oh: only nine days until the new Hem album debuts. Right now, the band's website has a pre-order deal: place an order before September 1 at 3:30, and they'll not only send you the album super-quick (i.e., on the release date, if you choose express shipping) but also autograph the liner notes. You can hear samples of the album's songs here.

I don't know about you, but when an unequivocal good presents itself to me, I don't question it.

[A half-hour passes before she discovers...]

Oh! Though the album isn't due out until September 5, if you go to iTunes you can download it right now! Oh! It's the best night-before-the-first-day-of-school present ever!
