Are there any notoriously bad Ogg Vorbis encoders?, I think Spotify might be using one of them...

I am wondering because I have noticed a particular disturbing artifact on many Spotify tracks. What could cause this? I'd like to reproduce this sound in order to back up my suspicions. I can't seem to reproduce the noise no matter how low quality I compress my test audio, so my first guess was that Spotify could have used a bad encoder, earlier version, etc. Much like some early MP3 encoders, such as Xing, were notorious for producing poor quality MP3s.

I have some samples available on my blog:
