Early Day Miners

From Bloomingpedia

Early Day Miners is an ambient, post-rock unit from Bloomington. The core of this musical collective includes Ativin's Dan Burton and Rory Leitch, along with their mutual friend Joe Brumley. They are produced by Secretly Canadian.

In 2009 the band released a new album, The Treatment. One reviewer wrote, After years of building gorgeous and sprawling guitar rock epics, EDM has trimmed their sound into shorter, tighter songs with a decidedly pop edge to them.

In 2002, the band collaborated with Unwed Sailor to release the Stateless EP as an accompaniment to a short movie by filmmaker Chris Bennett.

The collective's third full-length 2003 release, Jefferson At Rest, had Burton sharing engineering duties with several prominent independent artists, including Cheree Jetton (The Pilot Ships, Bees Are Black) and David Pajo (Slint, Papa M).
