849 is the first release by harsh noise project, Pupae. The album was originally released on the Mumble Etc. Bandcamp page, but was later moved to a secondary label just for Pupae, named "Barrfparty". The label, however, has since also frequently featured appearances from Lewis' girlfriend's (known as ʝennifur or previously jenny тнє monster in the music community) noise project, Neon Space Cats on Venus and, most recently, the rock*-based sound art project, Blueschist.

The album consists of loud noises, high pitched frequencies, and heavy distortion. It was mostly made over the course of a short vacation. The notebook computer Lewis was using was difficult to control, so instead of trying to make melodic music, he made noise music, to at least get something done, attempting to break FL Studio. He describes the album as "The musical equivalent of a painter spitting on a canvas while beating it with the blunt end of the brush."

The album was made mostly in Winter Park, Colorado, and marks the beginning of a tradition to create a noise music album for every trip abroad - the next being FUTAFUTA FLYBY!!.

The song "You Took the Wrong Road" uses samples from Jackal Queenston's "The Road".

The song "Shortcut to the Wrong Road" is an amalgam of the songs "You Took the Wrong Road" and "Shortcut".
