Spotify using TONS of bandwidth just sitting there

Spotify is using a TON of bandwidth and its just sitting there. It's not downloading any playlists, its not even playing any songs. And yet, it is using 300 Mbps of data.

It also causes my cpu to use an entire thread, which causes my system to hitch and slow down even when just using the mouse. It's been doing this for 5 solid minutes. Looking on the Performance tab, I can see its both sending _and_ receiving ~180Mbps of data. wth?! I reinstalled when I saw it doing this, and the moment I turned spotify on, it started doing it again.
