Twilight Nuages are a ten-piece folk-pop band from 1977, led by high school music teacher Bill Last. The band are made up of friends and students including four very talented girls aged between 16 and 17 who make a great chorus of back up singers and take turns at lead vocals. The album was recorded live in Last’s parent’s basement and there were no overdubs. The idea is reminiscent of The Langley Schools Project, the execution is more like Olivia Tremor Control.

7/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 7th February 2015
This is a surprisingly lovely folk/pop, soft/pop record organised by a school music teacher who put together a band of friends and students. The songs flip between sing-a-long sunshine pop, such as "Lazy Sunday Afternoons" and the mournful, such as "You Can Always Walk Away" which is quite beautiful. Generally, the lead vocals are split between the male teacher and one of three girls, but occasionally they sing together, like on "Find My Dream Come True", where the result is quite effective. The recording is quite lo-fi, which only adds to its charm, in my opinion.
