Have you heard of Rare Monk? We hyped the Portland-based indie rockers' single, "Splice," back in January.

Today we're premiering Rare Monk's cover of Bill Wither's "Ain't No Sunshine." The original tune is a slow, smoky affair, while Rare Monk's cover certainly kicks things up a notch. The band injects a dose of fevered pop intensity into Wither's somber track , resulting in a cover that is equal parts tribute and triumph.

Thanks to B3SCI Records, fans can explore more of Rare Monk's music on Bandcamp. SXSW attendees can also catch Rare Monk at the following stops:
