Neil On Impression

Neil On Impression is a instrumental band from Italy. They share members with screamo giants
Raein, and were going to do a split with Kidcrash, but apparently that is no longer happening. I first heard them lurking Raein's shit, and then I found all their music on the blog Good Noisy Core. If you've never been to that blog, you should check it out, real good shit. Anywho, the band uses guitars, drums, bass, strings and other percussions, keys, and horns. Their sound is kinda epic, with all the build ups and heavy quasi-breakdowns along with really nice melodies, driving rhythms, slow pretty parts, and spacy shit. The horn reminds me of the horns on the American Football records. Theres some electric shit thrown in sometimes, but trust me, it sounds really nice. They have three albums out, one of which, L'oceano Delle Onde Che Restano Onde Per Sempre, just recently was released. I think they are signed to Denovali. I recommend that you should check these guys out if you are into Explosions In The Sky, K. C. Milian, Caspian, and/or 65daysofstatic. Below is a live video from a show they did in Italy. Sound quality rules. I also all three of their albums down there. On a side note, I saw Cursive recently at The Black Cat and it fucking ruled. I have no idea if they are still on their tour, but if they are I suggest you go see them, its fucking incredible.

The new cd, domestica, and the ugly organ were played about 5 times each. happy hollow had around three. they played one song from burst and bloom, plus a few from their other shit. they played for about an hour and a half. it was the shit.

I'm pretty sure the song in the video is "Centimetri Davanti All'orizzonte" off of "L'oceano Delle Onde Che Restano Onde Per Sempre". I cant really play it too loud becuase my roommates are watching a movie. I'm pretty sure its at least off of "L'oceano Delle Onde Che Restano Onde Per Sempre". once the movies done ill check it out more though.
