Accessibility Comments: 

The app can not be used with voice over. I was able to log in to my spotify account, access the menu bar and the search edit, but not much else. All other controls with in the spotify window can not be accessed with voice over.

Usability: 

Some parts of the app are accessible with VoiceOver, but not enough to make it usable.

Other Comments: 

Considering how accessible the IOS part of spotify is, it's a pitty the mack app is so VO unaware. For now, I'd suggest use the web player available in www.spotify.com until the issues are fixed in a future version.
