FLAC album not being recognised and "phantom" empty artist/album shown in interface

Hi there, I love the HifiBerryOS interface but I'm having problems because an album of FLAC files isn't being recognised. It's on a Samba share, which otherwise seems to work fine.

Is there are recommended file structure or anything I'm missing? I see someone had a similar issue recently: https://support.hifiberry.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360014326377-Mpd-libraray-does-not-recognise-Album

I've tried reinstalling the software several times. I thought it might be because I had some WAV files, which I learnt aren't supported. However, some of those were recognised and others weren't. I removed all of them and reinstalled. I also tried removing all of the files beginning ._ that my Mac had put on the Samba share but that doesn't make any difference either. Any ideas?

Possibly related: I have a "phantom" album and artist, with no image or subtitle, showing up in the interface. This keeps happening even though I've reinstalled the software several times and I can't get rid of them.

Here's a screenshot in case it helps:
