Lawrence's premier diva has had a productive summer: tracking a session for Daytrotter, opening for Modest Mouse and Conor Oberst, and scoring a fashion feature in Interview Magazine. The songs on Dri's debut album "Smoke Rings" wouldn't sound out of place on a Sade record if it weren't for the modern electronica and hip-hop inflections. And there's oh so much more crammed between the cracks of her breezy vocals; soulful 6/8 torch songs, Feist-like summer jams and even a bit of that Fleetwood Mac song-and-dance that her old band The Anniversary did so well.
