Eveningland is the second album by indie folk group Hem. It was released on Rounder Records after a delay caused by the folding of the DreamWorks music division. The album features a cover of Johnny Cash's famous song "Jackson," as well as more orchestral arrangements, a change from the sometimes-stark instrumentation of their previous album, Rabbit Songs.

The album features backing vocal contributions from multi-instrumentalist Dawn Landes on a number of songs, and singer-songwriter Josh Rouse on "Carry Me Home."

"Pacific Street" was used in a Series 3 episode of "Everwood".
