Pull the pads off, give em a sand, may be glazed, grease the slides that the pads sit on, and pins.

Becareful, if you sand them, unevenly, you'll do more harm than good.

I think it's just your choice of pads, and that the pad design is poor, and cannot get rid of the amount of brake dust it creates. So it gets stuck between the disc and the pad. Just be sure to clean your car/wheels more, and try and get in there and clean and blow out the dust every couple of days.

Cheers

The oscillating sound you are getting could be a high spot on the rotor, may need the discs machined you cant do just one, you should do all or the front or the rears.
