Cat Power! I knew I was forgetting someone. [x] I haven’t heard of the other song, but I’ll look it up forthwith. I’m of the mind that Little Red Riding Hood based songs totally count, since in the earliest versions of the story the wolf is sometimes overtly called a werewolf, and in the later version’s he’s still… well, a talking, often bipedal wolf. So yeah.

Belatedly responding to your request for hipster werewolf songs! I also have some non-hipster werewolf songs (mostly classic rock). TBH, I am probably misapplying the word hipster in the first place, given as some of these are far too well known for me to have liked them before they were cool. I think I just like saying hipster werewolf songs because it leaves open the possibility that they are actually songs about hipster werewolves.
Howl by Florence and the Machine, kind of a gimmee.
TV on the Radio’s Wolf Like Me, although I also quite like the cover by Lera Lynn, possibly because of my abiding and secret love of the banjo.
Werewolf by Fiona Apple, even if only the first verse is technically about werewolves. Other verses include sharks and volcanoes, which are also things I like.
Wolf by First Aid Kit. I’m linking to an acoustic version, mostly because I find the music video for the song a little bit ridiculous.
I’m being lazy and listing these from memory, so I’ve probably forgotten a couple, but there you go!
