Can't get rid of downloading notification

So I finally figured out what is happening (after clearing, uninstalling, etc).

 

When I run Spotify on android, I get a notification that said "Downloading 0 out of 6 (0% complete).  It never completes and it's impossible to get rid of.

 

It turns out that, even though I had checked "Hide unplayable tracks" and they weren't showing, this notification doesn't obey that.  So they can't download, don't show, and you get a notification forever that can't be dismissed.

 

Workaround is to delete unplayable tracks from playlists, but shouldn't have to deal with that.

Okay, well I spoke too soon apparently.

 

Now it manages to download anywhere between 2 to 10 songs before freezing.  It does not make any progress after that.  I've tried restarting the app.  Uninstalling the app.  De-authorizing/re-authorizing offline playing for the phone, etc.

 

Per this other post, I tried toggling the Storage permission.  Interestingly, every time I toggle it and return to the app it downloads another 2-10 songs before freezing again.  I'm slowly working through my playlists which, I have to say, is an utter delight!

 

Please fix?

 

I'm on a Nexus 5x, not rooted.
