Every time this song begins, my brain goes ‘OH! It’s ‘The Greatest’ by Cat Power’ and I prepare to get foetal on the floor and weep. And then – this is the neat trick – it turns out to in fact be a song called ‘My Ma’ by Girls...
Uno de los comentarios en The Guardian:
Listen to the track My ma' and then listen to Cat Power - The Greatest. Don't you find the tracks to be a bit too similar? Structually they seem to be indentical.
Este post titulado Songs that Sound Like Girls' New Song la compara además con una de Flaming Lips y una de Built to Spill:
Not an obvious sound-alike, but very similar in its structure and sound. “The Greatest” opens Cat Power‘s 2006 album of the same name, and sets the mood for an emotionally reflective outing. Out of all four songs, this may be the best, but “My Ma” is a worthy number two.
Los comentarios en lastfm también la comparan con ese track de Flaming Lips y el de Cat Power (cinco veces):
''This sounds like cat power - the greatest''
