It's hard to tell if This Heat played in standard tuning, and there's little information on how they played
on the internet. If you play this along with the recording it does sound a bit off, maybe by a
quarter tone or so. I reckon they probably used some whack tuning anyway, so just mess about with it.

Intro and verses are ~115bpm, bridge is ~180, outro is ~135.

[Intro]
(Strum these notes slowly as a barre chord rather than picking individually)

[Bridge]
Play this riff at an accelerating rate
(You can additionally barre the highest two strings and strum those too, optionally)
   1  +  2  +  3  +

(Amidst all the noise, looped sound, and general freakiness, it's difficult to tell what's being played
here, but my best guess is something like this. Tremolo picking just the high notes kinda works too) 
Let the high notes ring
   1  +  2  +  3  +  4  +    1  +  2  +  3  +  4  +    1  +  2  +  3  +  4  +    1  +  2  +  3  +  4  +
