Paul Shapera’s New Albion sequence, the first part of which was released in 2012, is a rock opera/concept album exploring the lives of the MacAlister family over multiple generations. The first album, The Dolls of New Albion, is set in a Steampunk age; the second, The New Albion Radio Hour, is an interesting rendering of Dieselpunk; and the third, The New Alibion Guide to Analogue Consciousness, completes the operatic trilogy through Atompunk.

With the late 2015 release of the final piece, now seems like a good time to explore Shapera’s work.
