  • During quarantine, a number of white-noise generators sprung up allowing you to recreate sounds of un-locked-down life. I recommended “I Miss My Bar,” which let you experience the clinking and chattering of your favorite watering hole even if you couldn’t be there physically. Now, as many prepare to return to the office, there is “Homesick Sounds,” which lets you create bespoke mash-ups of at-home noises like “Baby (Awake),” “Mowing the Lawn” and “What’s That Beep?”

  • Be Sinna Nasseri’s plus one at a “clandestine pop-up jazz speakeasy” in Midtown Manhattan.

  • And here’s Brittany Howard performing “Baby” live at Ryman Auditorium.
