There's actually not that much to learn. In all it's only 3 different guitars
coming in and out, each one playing its riff; almost like samples.
The bass then determines the root of whatever unusual chord come out of mixing
these different guitar "samples". This song is as indie rock as it gets! :)
Guitar 1

[C#sus4] [C#m]

Guitar 2
***********
Plays an 8-bar riff. Play the first bar 3 times with the first ending (4),
then play it another 3 times with the last ending (8).
Let all the strings ring out.
(1-3)(5-7) (4) (8)

( Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/t/the_fashion/like_knives_tab_ver_2.html )
In the last 2 bars of the Intro, before entering, play this little fill.
Strum the two notes and slowly bend the B-string up to match the E note:
 
 |-0-------------|---------------|
 |-4b5-----------|---------------|
 |---------------|---------------|
 |---------------|---------------|
 |---------------|---------------|
 |---------------|---------------|

Also, in the verses produce some distorted screaming notes in the background.
I didn't transcribe this since it's very vague and impossible to decipher.
Guitar 3

 |---5-5----5--5--5-|---7-7----7--7--7-|---0-0----0--0--0-|---2-2----2--2--2-|
