Out Of Genre Horn Sections

I don't know about you guys but whenever a song interjects a horn section that's seemingly random but it works well, I jazz a little. Any similar recs?
1Tera Melos
Split: Complex Full of Phantoms

A very nice bombastic and spontaneous horn section. It's epic and well placed. It's
seemingly random but one needs to expect the unexpected on math rock records.
2The Speed of Sound in Seawater
Red Version

The horns add very nice emotional texture in Romanticore. Placement here couldn't
be odder in my opinion, but they set the tone of the song nicely.
3A Lot Like Birds
Conversation Piece

How Kurt Travis managed to write his vocals over the horn section on Vanity's Fair
will forever elude me; it's catchy, it works, and it doesn't sound contrived.
4A Lot Like Birds
No Place

One random horn section per album, it seems. The one on Recluse is aggressive,
sinister, and overall impressive. Absolutely epic since none of the other instruments
falter once the section kicks in.
5The Chariot
One Wing

The enormous buildup and final release on First was leviathan in size and epicness,
even more so because it takes up most of the almost 4-minute-long song.
