Artist: The Rapture
Song: "Echoes"
Album: Echoes (2003)

The tuning used for Echoes and Out of the Races and Onto the Tracks
is "standard", but with each string tuned sharp a 1/2 step:
F A# D# G# C F

Any chords listed take this tuning into account, so a D#m is in the 
traditional Dm shape (xx0231), and so on.

That's it.  It's actually pretty simple and repetitive once you have the sharp tuning.  
I learned about The Rapture's tuning from them in 2001.
Use a Fender Strat + Bassman amp in order to get that insane tone. 
Please feel free to post comments, questions, requests, etc.
