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. The Lawrence diva recently completed a short tour with the Helio Sequence; she'll hit the road with Handsome Furs in July.
