In a town full of creatives who might claim the title of “hardest working artist in town,” Landis “Expandis” McCord is arguably among those with a real shot at that crown.
A fixture of the music scene for more than 25 years, Expandis rose to prominence fronting the All Mighty Senators soon after arriving in Baltimore to study painting at MICA. In the ensuing years, he has been a restless, self-reinventing artist continuing to develop his visual art and performance practices, hosting popular DJ sets, as well as playing and recording with bands like F City, Flo, and, of course, the Senators. It’s exactly what one might expect from an artist named Landis Expandis.
His newest project, the pandemic-born Landis Harry Larry, merges his music and visual art practices. The trio of musicians—all performed by Expandis—create lively, timely synth-based music about both quotidian and existential concerns. The flashy, fantastic videos Expandis creates for the Landis Harry Larry YouTube channel have gained a loyal following that found a home for a Landis Harry Larry special on the Night Flight channel.
