LP is the first and only album by the New York-based indie rock band Ambulance LTD. The album was released on March 23, 2004 in the US and March 14, 2005 in the UK by TVT Records. The album went on to sell more than 100,000 copies worldwide.

LP was promoted with the release of the singles "Heavy Lifting", "Stay Where You Are", and "Primitive (The Way I Treat You)" throughout late 2004 and 2005. Following the album's release, Ambulance LTD would go on to release one more EP, New English in 2006, before dissolving after a lengthy legal battle with TVT Records.
